Fall is in the Air

LDV Winery
This is an exciting time at Lawrence Dunham Vineyards – it's harvest time!

We anticipate starting to harvest September 6th and continue through September.

It's Harvest Time
Once the grapes come out of the vineyard they are destemmed and placed in bins or tanks to ferment; except for the Viognier that we press immediately and place in tanks as quickly as possible to cool. The red grapes ferment for about ten days before they are pressed. Once pressed, the reds move into their barrels where they will live for the next two years before they come to your table to enjoy.

To show off some of this process and to celebrate what looks to be a good harvest, we have scheduled a couple of upcoming events at the vineyard. We would love to see you at the vineyard during this exciting time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Check out the September blog Flavors of Fall for some tips on pairing with fall flavors and enjoy one of our favorite recipes Sizzlin’ Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Pepper Sauces and Chili Corn Tacos. http://www.ldvwinery.com/blog.html
