Entering the Home Stretch

And just like that, the 2018 harvest season is coming to an end. Vintners throughout Napa Valley are stepping back and reflecting on the steady harvest they had this year. The near-perfect growing season started later than previous years, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and is coming to a close for a majority of wineries throughout the valley. Wines from the 2018 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars, and winemakers are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them.
