A Soggy Weekend In Wine Country

Vintners raced to beat a big, wet storm

Posted: October 25, 2010  By James Laube

A powerful storm drenched Northern California over the weekend, putting an exclamation point on a very strange harvest.

Winemakers worked frantically last week to harvest as many grapes as possible in anticipation of the weekend rain, and rain it did, sometimes quite heavily. More than 2 inches fell in Napa, and closer to 3 in areas such as Mendocino and Sonoma, which are closer to the ocean.

Those who beat the storm are excited about quality. For many winemakers who didn't, there is little to do but wait and hope.

Posted: October 11, 2010  By James Molesworth

Gray, rainy weather accompanied me all the way up from New York City, intensifying as I drove through Elmira and into Watkins Glen, at the southern edge of Seneca Lake. However, Sam Argetsinger was in his vineyard and picking Riesling, so I stopped there before making my scheduled visits to Anthony Road, Standing Stone and Red Newt Cellars during harvest 2010.
