Ripening Chardonnay in southern Napa Valley

1278692776-770

The cool spring has become a cool summer so we’re a couple of weeks behind in grape development and ripening here in the Napa Valley. As these Chardonnay grapes in our Carneros Vineyard show, the vines and grapes look healthy with even ripening so it appears to be a great vintage so far, we’ll just have to harvest a little later than usual.
