Pic of the Vine - September 2013

Friday, September 20, 2013

This month's Pic of the Vine from contributing photographer Richard Duval are a series of images from harvest at Whidbey Island Winery.

While for eastern Washington wineries, a little rain during harvest can sometimes be a good thing, for western Washington's wineries - where there is often considerably more accumulation - it can potentially be ruinous.

With over an inch and a half of rain during the week, Duval said of last weekend's harvest of Madeleine Angevine and Siegerrebe, "What was supposed to be a fun harvest on Saturday turned into a rescue party!" Click on the pictures for larger images.
