Grape Harvest Underway

Grapes

Grape growers in our region have their hands full this weekend as most of them take part in grape harvest season.

Growers will be harvesting their white riesling grapes through the next week -- growers tell us this summer's hot weather helped mature the grapes much faster than normal, prompting them to begin harvesting almost two weeks ahead of schedule.

Growers will begin harvesting their darker red wine grapes in a few weeks.
