2014 Harvest Predictions

The question on everyone's mind right now is twofold:  when will harvest start and how small will it be?  Eight weeks ago I anticipated our third large harvest in a row, which would be unprecedented in the 28 harvests that I’ve seen.  Cluster counts were good and clusters looked potentially large, but a heat wave during flowering caused shatter (lack of pollination) and dramatically reduced our cluster weights.  Meanwhile, the warm and dry weather that continued through the spring caused our small crop to develop quickly.  Persistently foggy weather throughout June and early July has somewhat mitigated this effect, but we could still start harvest in early August, which would be our earliest start ever.  I also have a feeling it will be a quick harvest as the soil profile is very dry and the vines don't appear to have much "reserve" to weather the temperature we typically experience during the Fall.  To sum it all up, we might be picking August 10, the crop could be 20% smaller than average and we might be done by October 10.  Mother Nature keeps us on our toes! -  BT
