Winemaker’s Journal: NCW’s wine grape harvest is in overdrive about now

Good luck trying to catch a Washington winemaker right now. Owners of most small, privately owned wineries are on the road transporting tons of grapes from state vineyards back to their wineries.

Once the grapes arrive, work begins to crush, de-stem and get the slurry into fermenting tanks to begin conversion into wine. Most wineries process five, six or more grape varieties, all which ripen at different times.
