We've passed the six week mark on harvest, which began on August 13th with a pick of Sauvignon Blanc at Artz Vineyard in Red Mountain by Woodinville's Auclair Winery. Below is a look at harvest based on what has been picked when and where. Many expect harvest to wrap up around the middle of the month, though for some it will surely stretch out until the end of October, weather permitting. Enjoy!
