I am a farm girl, through and through, I love all areas of AG!!! Every year for the past several years I’ve seen our friends who own the @whitesquirrelwinery post about the grape harvest. Each year I tell myself I’m going to go to the vineyard and experience it for myself because it just fascinates me! Well, today was the day!
@cwsanderson59 welcomed me with open arms, shared all about the harvest process, how these are the Noiret variety which are headed to the @arringtonvineyards in Nashville for them to make their Petit Noir wine, and he even let me help! Might I say, Harvesting grapes is a lot of work, the yellow tubs hold about 30lbs of grapes (its a good thing I liift) and the big containers hold about 1,000lbs. There was 14 rows of vines ready for them to pick today, i can’t remember how many miles that is but I know it’s several, and there are many many more to go of other varieties!
Every day we have the chance to learn and experience new things, more tones than not it pushes us a little out of our comfort zone but it is always worth it, today I made the choice to experience the grapes harvest, what will you choose to do and learn about today??
