First Pinot Noir of 2008!

7 10 2008

We crushed our first Pinot in Elkton today from the Westbrook Vineyard.  It is approximately 5 miles North of Sutherlin, OR.  This fruit was harvested on Sept 16 last year.  So…that makes it about 3 weeks behind.

More photos to follow as soon as I figure it out!  Exciting day, fruit arrived in great shape, clusters are smaller from this vineyard than they were last year.  Grape flavor!!!  I experienced dumping the grape bins into the hopper, using the forklift, (might not seem like much, but it really is).  Couldn’t get the smile off my face.

My husband, Terry , is a master with the forklift, he teases that he attended Fork U.

More grape fun tomorrow : )
