    During those sun-drenched late summer days when we started picking back in mid-September, someone asked me about my expectations for Harvest 2015. I began my answer by saying, “Barring a hail storm that takes out the vineyard…”—because, at the time, there had been enough summer heat to nicely ripen our fruit, rain came when we need it, and as a result there was not much disease pressure on the fruit.
