Todd and Lalo harvested the Chardonnay this morning. Todd is still making fun of me for being such a whiny whimp about my bee sting, so he didn’t even bother to tell me about harvest until this morning. Above is a picture of some Chardonnay grapes in the lug, along with a few tag-along-drunk bees.

I snuck a few tastes of the Chardonnay – delicious! They are at 21 bricks, which Todd said is exactly what he wanted for the sugar content. They acidity level is exactly where he wants it too. I’m very excited; I love Chardonnay!
