Hudson Valley Harvest








Last weekend I had the opportunity to see Whitecliff Vineyards harvest Gamay Noir. The grapes come in from the field in bins. They are then put in the destemmer. Then it is pumped over into the tank. The Gamay Noir you see in these pictures will be used to make Beaujolais style wine. In fact, Gamey is the only grape which makes Beaujolais. I believe Whitecliff will have a Beaujolais Nouveau which will be ready in time for Thanksgiving.
