Our weekend adventures took us from one end of the valley to the other–from Carneros all the way to just north of Calistoga. We noted that while behind the “normal” schedule, veraison is in full effect (if not complete) in most areas and signs that harvest is just around the corner abound.
In fact, we’ve received a press release from Mumm Napa, the sparkling wine producer that is typically one of the first to begin harvest each year, indicating they plan to kick-off the 2010 harvest early in the morning on August 24th.
Below is a glimpse into what the Napa Valley looks like at present.
