What can happen with an early Winter Storm!

An early winter storm brought 5 inches of rain to Carmel Valley. Our grapes were still not mature enough to harvest prior to the rain - so here is what happened. The weight of the rain, the amount of rain and then 30 mph winds severly damaged the vineyard. We were able to reset the vines after the storm, however we cannot repair the damage until winter. Stay tuned!
