This was our 19th harvest at Marimar Estate and, looking back, I am struck by how much more erratic and challenging harvests seem to have become. In the 2009 growing season we faced rain, followed by cool weather, followed by heat waves - all presenting trials for our team. For awhile, because véraison came late, we expected a late harvest, around mid-September - but instead it arrived September 2. And to top it all off, almost all the fruit in our vineyards ripened at once!
