Dec 2010

December weather forces the vines into dormancy. The leaves drop off and the canes are left to be pruned later in the season.

I went to Oregon after the harvest (a 2-year tradition now). I remember this December as being brisk but nothing crazy cold (it did snow in Eastern WA). I could not resist taking a detour off of Interstate 5 at Medford, OR to explore the Southern Oregon AVAs.
