    What do you guys do with cicadas? I noticed quite a few of them on my vines. So I put on my bird net early just in case.

    Fruit drop

    I live an hour away from my vineyard. I only found out from my wildlife cams. They have been eating my grapes since mid August, the camera caught one on the first night of the setup.

    Fruit drop

    I have Leon Millot, Frontenac, Marquette, Cab Sauv, Somerset, Candice. They are all doing this this year. Didn't happen last year and years before, at lease not at this scale. Last year is the actually the first season that yield a decent harvest.

    Fruit drop

    I had severe fruit drop in August on most of my vines, especially those heavily-produced ones last year. The berries just fall off from the stem with the lightest touch, some of them are not even fully purple. Any theory why this happen? There are some excessive hot days (100F) this summer, I...

    Post your clusters

    Last year Marquette veraison started in early July. I was hoping to pick them together with Leon Millot but realized that it was impossible. I picked on August 18th, although there were some over-ripen clusters, but on average the Brix was about right. When you see bugs swarming the clusters, it...
