Autumn Vineyard Update October 19 2016

Autumn at IrisFall is a time of transition at the vineyard: harvest has ended and the leaves are beginning to turn. We were fortunate to harvest all of the grapes prior to the first storm of the season!  The vineyard team has been completing some post harvest activities, including fertilizing, planting cover crop, as well as cleaning, repairing, and storing equipment.  Fall color is just beginning, and temperatures have been warmer than usual causing the change in color to come slowly.  The warm temperatures mean that the vines are getting some good post harvest growing time to recharge for future vintages.  Below are some photos of the vineyard this fall season.  Cheers to vintage 2016!
