It’s that time of year–a few of the white wine grapes are already off the vines and the valley is buzzing about harvest 2012.

As we did last year, we’re collecting daily updates, photos, videos and commentary from wineries throughout the valley to create a Harvest 2012 story that you can follow along with.

The super early draft is included below and at the top of the page we have a tab dedicated to Harvest 2012, so be sure to check back there for regular updates.
