What a sensational summer!  The weather has been as perfect as can be for summer, and when you see the photos I posted from yesterday, you would scarcely believe they were taken on September 1, 2014!!  I have never seen the mountain and surrounding meadows so green this time of year, much less the vineyard.  It was a beautiful afternoon with blue sky and puffy clouds dancing across the sky, shining varying patterns of sunlight upon the vines and surrounding landscape.  The fruit yield so far appears to be heavy, and the muscadines are turning.  Stay tuned for news about the Sugargate table muscadines, which are first to ripen.  We have been sampling the few early grapes, once again reminding us how much we love muscadines!  Truly, this is the best season of the year!
