Final Grape Harvest Today

The planets finally aligned (well the temps did anyway) today up at Georgian Hills vineyard for the last of the 2012/13 grape harvest. Three rows had been waiting patiently for the magic temperature of -8C which is the prime time for sugar concentration in the grapes for Vidal (don’t call it ice wine!).
Volunteers quickly stripped the vines, and because the temps rose with the sun, the majority of the grapes won’t be pressed until later tonight, when once again, the magic -8 is expected.
