Frog’s Leap Winery owner John Williams (right) and viticulturist Frank Leeds discuss dry farming Tuesday during the Organic Winegrowing Conference presented by Napa Valley Grapegrowers.
Napa, Calif.—With minds focused on the prolonged drought, it’s not surprising that the seventh Organic Winegrowing Conference scheduled a session about dry farming. Nor is it a surprise that the dry-farming session was very well attended by attendees—even though, strictly speaking, dry farmers don’t have to be organic. (Most are, however.)

Northwest Vintners Take Heat in Stride

Washington wineries predict late August start to harvest

Sagemoor Vineyards reported véraison July 16.
Pasco, Wash.—Summertime and the growing is easy—or at least that’s how it seems in the Northwest this year, as vintners keep an eye on fruit that’s starting to color up under the influence of hot, dry weather.

Véraison began two weeks ago in the vineyards overseen by Kent Waliser, general manager of Sagemoor Vineyards. Preliminary work toward crop estimates is starting as fruit gets color and the 2014 harvest (already under way in California) moves into view.

“We’re heading toward an early harvest like last year,” Waliser told Wines & Vines of his Washington state vineyards. “Most everything seems fruitful enough that the state’ll have a good crop, and we’ll have a good crop, and nothing extremely out of the ordinary.”

A spate of warm weather has helped, with readings in the mid- to high 90°s across Eastern Washington this week, with some locations reporting temperatures in excess of 100° F (real-time tracking temperature readings are available via Washington State University’s AgWeatherNet).
