DOWD staff photographer John Colaruotolo, vineyard manager at Casa Larga, says the excellent growing season for grapes means they can remain on the vine longer, allowing them to ripen and be used for Chardonnay and Pino Noir.
Free Wine Testing The grape harvest, like just about every other crop this year, has arrived two to three weeks early because of an unusually warm spring that kicked off an especially pleasant growing season.
Wine Business In India Some Finger Lakes vineyards were picking grapes on Monday, the second-to-last day of August, which Fox Run Vineyards pronounced the earliest harvest in its history. Typically, the harvest begins in mid-September.

ON a recent warm summer evening, well over a thousand people packed the lawns at Boordy Vineyards in Hydes, Md. Families tucked into picnics, toddlers ran freely, and couples and singles danced on the makeshift floor to a swing band pumping out oldies. But the main reason for the crowds was the wine.
Wine Testing Tour India Boordy, situated on a 240-acre farm a mere half-hour outside Baltimore, was a dairy and cattle farm for more than two centuries before becoming a winery in 1945. On this night, the cavernous tasting room — where cows were once milked — was lined with patrons sampling from among the vineyard’s 18 choices; an outside bar was selling full pours.
Free Wine Testing The wines on offer were quaffable, even enticing, but the mostly local crowd spending Saturday night at Boordy captured the essence of Maryland’s fast-growing wine scene: coming here is as much about having a good time as it is about having a good sip.

Winegrowers, a rabbi and a minister gathered this morning in vineyards on the outskirts of Livermore for the annual Blessing of the Grapes, just before the 29th annual Harvest Wine Celebration this weekend.
White Wine In India The Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association used the opportunity to unveil new wine region signage and to launch an iPhone app -- Livermore Valley App -- to help guests find their way around the Livermore Valley Wine Region.
Wine Testing Tour "This is the first sign in our signage program," said Chris Chandler, executive direction of the association, pointing to the stacked sign giving directions to nine wineries at the corner of South Livermore Avenue and Concannon Boulevard. "It is to promote the area and educate visitors, residents -- and daily commuters." She also held up "The Wine Seeker's Guide to Livermore Valley" by Thomas C. Wilmer, saying the new publication is the first of its kind for this region.

W ESTPORT — On a broiling morning under a cloudless sky, Bill Russell of Westport Rivers Vineyard and Winery spoke about producing large quantities of red wine, from his own grapes, for the first time in the farm’s history. But for this to happen, the grapes must survive Nature’s wrath.
White Wine India "I mean we’re talking two weeks away, maybe three weeks away, from actually accomplishing it," Russell said. "We’re not popping bottles of Champagne to celebrate, but it’s hard not to sort of be a little bit excited." However, Russell has been down this road before.
White Wine In India That year, Russell was in his mid-20s. At this rate — if Hurricane Earl sours an otherwise splendid season — he’ll be in his 60s before conditions are ripe again for red.
