RAIN!!! IN THE FORCAST FOR CALIFORNIA FOR OCTOBER 6TH AND MAYBE 7TH!
Monterey County normally recieves about .8 of an inch of rain in October (National Weather Service). At Chateau julien we have already harvested over 200 acres of grapes and are closing in on completion for the year. The only grape left in the field is Sangiovese - pictured here. This is a thick skinned and loose clustered grape and can easily take at least one rainfall. Of course, we have to monitor all the conditions after rain to keep the vineyard and grapes in the best condition possible. We will keep you informed. By the way - We are harvesting Gewurztraminer as this blog is posted!
