Do You Hear the Harvest Rumble?

Harvest 2021 will be here in just a few weeks!

Get your grapes. Hopefully, you have your grapes sourced but if you’re still looking, you can find possibilities here.

Get your winery into shape. At SHW’s upcoming monthly meeting on July 21, Petaluma winemaker Bob Peak will be covering important topics when preparing for the upcoming crush plus fermentation basics. This is the time to ask your wine making questions. Watch for a future blog post for the Zoom invitation.

Get your cellar organized. Bottling wines can make room in your winery and free up vessels. Set aside your best wines to enter into SHW’s Jubilee wine competition. This member exclusive 2-day event returns on October 9-10, 2021. Entrant wines will be judged on that Saturday and the results revealed the next day at the awards ceremony and picnic. Details and competition rules will be posted on the website soon.

Get you and your crew ready. 2021 SHW Crush T-Shirts will be available soon. Need a wine making refresher? Winemaking 101 is on July 31 and equipment certification is offered at the workshop so that you can rent SHW wine making equipment. Trying to think things through? No need to keep guessing, talk with a wine making or viitculture mentor.
