Harvest begins in Washington

Monday, August 15, 2016

Harvest has begun in Washington, with Chelan's Karma Vineyards bringing in five tons of Wente clone Chardonnay from French Creek Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. The fruit, which came in on August 15th, will be used for sparkling wine. Landon Sam Keirsey, cellar master at Karma, said that the winery brought in this same fruit on August 17th last year. Sugar was measured on August 12th at 16 to 18 Brix and will be measured again tomorrow at the winery.

Let harvest begin!
