Crushing Eagles Nest and Upstream Cabernet Sauvignon

September 30th, 2020

I had planned to harvest the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes  from the two other small vineyards  I lease and manage this Friday, but with the Glass Fire only 17 mile north I took advantage of a few cool days to pick, crush and get it in tank before things changed.  The fires have the roads blocked to the vineyard where I usually crush and make my wine, luckily it was less than 20 tons total and the kind folks at Ceja winery made space for me.
