Sonoma Valley bursts with vibrancy and exhilaration as the harvest season unfolds each year between August and October.
The start of Harvest 2023 in California is notably delayed, unfolding nearly three weeks later than the usual schedule. A combination of abundant winter rainfall, a chilly spring, and an early summer has significantly prolonged the grapes' maturation period. As a result, we are observing grapes reaching their optimal ripeness with lower sugar levels and higher acidity, resembling a French vintage more than a Californian one. The forthcoming H2o wine refreshments will showcase increased minerality, a touch of lightness, and a profound complexity. We eagerly anticipate the zero alcohol wine-infused delights of 2023.
As the harvest progresses, red varieties, which require additional time to fully mature, are harvested until late October, sometimes extending into early November. Among the red varieties, Pinot Noir grapes in Sonoma Valley are harvested earlier for a lighter, fruiter wine.
Late-harvest wines, distinguished by their prolonged time on the vine, are gathered beyond the usual harvest period, allowing the grapes to reach higher levels of ripeness and concentrated sugars. Harvesting of these grapes can persist until December.
The culmination of the harvest season marks the onset of Cabernet Season, providing winemakers a well-deserved opportunity to relax and savor the fruits of their labor.
