A series of warm days and cool nights have pushed Napa Valley’s vintners and growers across the annual harvest finish line. As the 11th week of picking draws to a close, all but a few blocks of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon are in and the scent of fermentation is filling the air throughout the Napa Valley.This year’s harvest will go down as one of the earliest ever in the Napa Valley and it will also be noted for near-perfect weather throughout the growing season, resulting in a fairly abundant and very high quality crop.


The harvest is winding down in our district….2014 will go down in history as the earliest harvest ever.
