Guest Blogger Alex McGeary on where he’s at with his winery!

“Well I looked up to the sky and noticed a full moon this past week and then looked down into a Merlot vineyard and observed that they were ripe indeed and ready for harvesting. But, it’s only the middle of August I said to myself, what’s going on?”

“Well, Global Warming is going on and it’s pushing the ripening curve of all of the varieties that I grow at high elevations. So, four days later and the Merlot vineyard is picked and the sugars of three other varieties are now ready. This harvest season is off and running. So goes the harvest of 2008!”
