Well this past growing season was one for the record books. A big winter with lots of snow, late rains, mild summer temperatures, led to an extended growing season and a late harvest. Add to that wind events that shut off power for 10 out of 14 days in October and... well, we were still processing grapes this week. For Bumgarner the harvest was spread out. We picked our first estate whites early in September; Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, & Chenin Blanc and pressed our last, Grenache just before Thanksgiving.
