Jim Mathews, Piney Woods Winery Vineyard Manager, looks over a plot of Muscadine grape vines, that are showing signs of lack of water due to the drought, in the yellowing and browning of the leaves. The plants are watered twice a day, but with the ground so dry, the total amount of the water does not always make it to the roots of the plants. Piney Woods Winery grows Muscadine grapes that require a lot of irrigation through the summer months. Small businesses are having a tough time weathering through the drought, some have said they've seen sales dip by half since a year ago.

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — As the crisp bite of fall turns vineyards into a kaleidoscope of russet and orange, the Napa Valley's spooky side comes out to play with tales of mysterious noises and ghostly sightings.
Wineries In India Not a believer? Not a problem. Skeptics can enjoy the valley's real-life "ghost wineries," relics of the pre-Prohibition industry that are haunted by history if nothing else.
The Wine Society Of India The term "ghost winery" refers to places that were started in the mid-to-late 19th century, a time when the California wine industry was booming, but were abandoned in the early 20th century. It was a crash brought about by the triple threat of an outbreak of the vine disease phylloxera, the Great Depression, and, of course, the failed experiment to ban alcohol that was analyzed in the recent PBS documentary "Prohibition" directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.

Despite the depressing rain, which has stalled the ripening ofthe red wine grapes throughout Napa Valley, vintners remaincautiously optimistic about the 2011 harvest. Most of thechardonnay and much of the zinfandel have been harvested, and withanticipated warm weather, ripening and harvesting will begin againthis week.
Winery In India The following is the harvest report by American Viticultural Areas,from north to south: Calistoga — Paul Smith, Vermeil Wines at OnThEdgeWinery: Rain, rain, go away, come again in November ormaybe December. Last week’s rain dropped sugars and stalled trueripeness. More falling as I type means more anxious hand-wringingto the chorus “… you gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold’em …” With a couple lyric substitutions, “The Gambler” couldeasily be renamed “The Vintner.” Time for the voodoo, bovine horn,rabbit’s foot, crossed fingers, prayer, whatever it takes to nudgeLady Luck into dropping another dry, warm weather card or two intoour hand.
Vineyards In India Howell Mountain — Pat Stotesbery, LaderaVineyards: “Rain, rain, go away” is the theme song.Between the drizzle, rain and cold, we have slipped back to lastyear’s pace. Some will start picking reds this week, even if justout of frustration so we might get our first peek at fruit quality.Everything looks good on the vines but time works against us. Andagain, tank space will probably be a challenge for many as harvestcompression looks more likely.
