Rise of the Machines

The evolution of the most important wine-industry innovation in nearly 150 years

Posted: September 18, 2012  By Robert Taylor

The Northern Hemisphere harvest begins this month, and in the vast, vast majority of the world's vineyards, it starts with a heavy machinery operator turning the ignition on a mechanical grape harvester.

Many wine lovers might imagine—or might prefer—a scenario that involved skilled harvesters gently selecting the very best bunches of grapes, all by hand. But the half-dozen experts I polled—including industry insiders, vintners and mechanical harvester operators—conceded that 90 percent or more of the world's wine grapes are likely harvested mechanically.

If you're interested in the intersection of quality and value, you should be grateful.

The Secret Ingredient in Every Harvest: Beer

When your hands are stained red, a cold one is all you want at the end of the day

Posted: September 12, 2012  By Tim Fish

It's half-past September and do you know what California winemakers are drinking?

Beer.

No, it's not a joke. There's an old saying, in fact: "It takes a lot of beer to make wine."

Spotty Describes California's 2011 Harvest

Justin Smith, Brian Loring and others are dealing with the late 2011 California grape harvest

Posted: October 28, 2011  By James Laube

We're in the middle of another crazy, late California harvest. Good but spotty are other themes that run through most of what you hear about California's harvest 2011. And on the horizon, the smaller crops in recent years could spell price increases. In areas where grapes are still hanging, harvest is winding down quickly and should be finished by next week, ahead of predictions of rain and cooler weather.

Checking in with California vintners still waiting to harvest their 2011 grape crop

Posted: October 27, 2011  By James Laube

Harvest 2011 is ending up more labor than labor of love in most parts of California.
