2018 Chardonnay Grape Harvest
Hi Everyone, this past Saturday we had a Chardonnay grape harvest at Eric’s dad’s vineyard, MJ Clovis Vineyard and I got a few photos to share with you from the day.
We gathered with family and some close friends to harvest the grapes from the vineyard starting in the afternoon. I tried to document it as best I could but I was holding my son who was unusually fussy that day (he’s been cutting teeth) so I didn’t get as many as I wanted. I shared some videos and photos on my IG stories too (be sure to follow me on there if you want to see more stories and posts like this!).
This vineyard pictured in the photos below is my father-in-law’s private vineyard. Last year, I was heavily pregnant with my son, so I didn’t get to see the grape harvest and I was delighted to be apart of it this year.
The grapes are so perfect and beautiful on the vine (shown below).
Does anyone have any ideas for what you can make with the grape skins?
We celebrated a family birthday in the barn that evening after the grapes had been pressed.
Thank you for reading and following along! Best, ~Sara
