Night Picking


Today the crew was back picking out the rest of our Chardonnay. Because of the heat the previous day they decided to start at 2:00am. This does not show the lighting very clearly but basically a gasoline generator, on a small trailer with tall light standards, is pulled behind the picking bins – the lighting is more than adequate. The beauty of this system is that both the pickers and the winemaker get what they want – working when it is cool and receiving cool grapes.
