The heat is on! Punctuated with rain showers, the vineyard and mountain greenery are growing like crazy. The annual Altus Grape Festival begins Friday, July 24, and I can't wait to see what grape varietals are ripening. Napa Valley reports early harvests this year. Muscadines are some of the last to ripen, but we are already eager to sample this year's crop. So glad to hear from our customers and your plans for our 2015 muscadines!
