I do not believe Stillwater Creek Vineyard has ever harvested in August, but that changed this year. On Friday, August 28th, we began picking Block 8 Merlot and Block 25 Chardonnay. Take a look at how this year is different from previous years:
2014: First day pickingSeptember 12; First day picking Merlot was September 16
2013: First day picking September 11; First day picking Merlot was September 18
2011: First day picking October 03; First day picking Merlot was October 7. . .41 days earlier than 2015!
