Pic of the Vine - August 2018

All around the state, vineyards are showing the full display of harvest colors. At Clark County's Bethany Vineyard and Winery, contributing photographer Richard Duval captured this image of Golubok grapes, a Russian variety favored by owner/winemaker Walt Houser. Just weeks away from harvest, these grapes will eventually be used for blending in Bethany wines.

Harvest begins in Washington

Harvest began today in Washington, with Treveri Cellars picking 25 tons of Chardonnay from Hilltop Vineyard in Yakima Valley. The fruit was picked at 18.1 Brix for sparkling wine. Treveri picked their first fruit in 2016 on this same date.

Let harvest begin!
