Lafond Vineyards Night Harvest

Work begins at 4:00am and continues until 10:00am avoiding the mi-day heat. Night temperatures drop to the low 50s while day temperatures can rise to the mid 80s.

The pickers like it and winemaker Bruce McGuire insists on it. Warm grapes can be damaged when handled. The Slideshow photos were taken by David Lafond during this past week. The grapes are Pinot Noir from various blocks in our vineyard.
