2019 continued a string of cool wet winters with a Valentine’s snowstorm. Spring appeared early with continuous warm dry weather. By summer, it seemed we were back to historic Oregon weather with many warm days and cool nights with no extremes. A traditional Oregon summer also brought a customary fall with unpredictable weather and intermittent strong rain in September. Fortunately, the storms were spaced far enough apart that we were able to drip-dry and complete ripening. We harvested the pinot Noir on October 1, the latest harvest in nearly a decade.
