Waiting for Harvest

by Harry Matthiasson

Waiting for harvest is a bit like Waiting for Godot. Waiting for Godot is a play where two characters wait endlessly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive.

As grape growers and wine makers, we are watching the weather very carefully right now and just waiting for the grapes to ripen. Last week's weather was very cool and it felt like we were transitioning to Fall. This week has been much warmer and feels like the beginning of Indian Summer - yesterday we even harvested the second round of Sauvignon blanc!
....but all of the other grapes are still just slowly ripening....and all we can do it wait......
