Friday’s steady rain made ducks, lawns and sturgeon fishermen happy, but not anxious North Coast vintners. The weekend weather turned appreciably warmer and allowed vineyard crews to swarm through the vines in what one vintner described as “panic picking” in Napa Valley.
Harvest is make-or-break time for the vintage and the weeks leading up to it are crucial. This is when Wine Spectator senior editor James Suckling caught up with winemakers around Tuscany to see how 2007 looks in Montalcino, Bolgheri and Chianti.

Finally off the road for a while. Jet lag has actually been a bonus. I'm up super early. On my first morning back, I walked through the Merkin West vineyard at sunrise. Wow! I'll say it backward... WoW! Almost brought me to tears.
