We started harvest last year on July 18th. I suspect we will start earlier this year as well. Just this morning a got samples of all our white grapes and a couple of our red grapes to check on their sugar and acid levels. I will work on that after lunch.
I stopped for a few minutes so I could write this for you all. I have been out of town a few days for a last minute vacation before harvest. Normally you are safe taking off early July. I almost had to cancel my trip due to the early harvest this year.
Logistics are going to be a very key part of harvest this year. We are selling grapes to a handful of wineries, making as much wine here in Comanche as possible, and we are sending a lot of grapes to Lubbock to be processed there. It is a lot of harvesting and shipping at the same time.
My guess is that we will be harvesting by next week. I will keep ya posted.
