salut! | take a tour to see okanagan wineries crush it in fall

by:Dolight LED Panel     2019-08-18
At this time of year, hope will be eternal in the winery.
Thanks to another early spring and a warm growing season, 2016 of the harvest is going well, especially in the Okanagan Valley.
There is no way to know what the outcome will be, but it looks like the grape has a chance to fully mature, which is what the winemaker can ask.
Not all grapes are equal in picking time.
By the time you read this, precocious grapes like suvion, Chardonnay, blackpinot and merlot are being crushed (
Moving south to north)
While growers and winemakers are waiting nervously for wine like Commander Lei and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Plus the vagaries of any year
Whether it\'s cool or hot, wet or dry, or perfect in some cases --
The final selection time depends on the schedule of mother nature.
If you get up early on the way to wine country, keep an eye out for picking dance.
This is a daily ritual, starting with science, which regularly provides the winery with the amount of sugar, Danic acid and acid at the peak of maturity.
Then there is a vineyard walk where growers and winemakers look for signals of stress, sugarcane maturity and other possible suggestions to start picking.
Finally the key Berry tasting.
Chewing grapes is indeed the only way to assess the ultimate physiological state of the crop and make the picking decision.
When it all happens, the grape growers constantly check the weather and start picking in spite of everything, because you never know when it will rain.
The date of selection is very high
No one is willing to make the wrong decision.
In most cases, instinct and years of experience determine the final decision, but no matter how it happens, it\'s a decision that you have to live for the rest of your wine life.
No pressure though!
What we do know is that the smell of fermented grapes has spread to the Okanagan Valley, and if you have not been to the wine country during the harvest, you will get a real treat.
Keep in mind that this is the money making day for the winery.
A lot of people are nervous and too tired, so be respectful and polite and don\'t let grapes and trucks into every winery.
Keep in mind that the smaller the winery, the less likely they will be to host you during the harvest, because they are too busy, so plan ahead.
Following the success of our summer edition of Salut, we have compiled a new list of 10 harvest stations in the fall.
Picking is based on the site, may walk in the vineyard, may catch a glimpse of the ability of the winery team to sort or crush grapes, and if possible we have some places where we can have lunch or dinner.
Keep in mind that crush keeps going day and night at many wineries, so pay attention to nearby tractors, forklifts and trucks.
Don\'t forget to throw an empty wine box or two behind your car to collect your favorite.

Just a short drive north of Kelowna International Airport, relatively new wineries join the ranks of more and more producers looking for cool vineyards between Kelowna and Vernon.
The red granite soil in the area has been compared to the soil in Alsace, France, for which the vineyards have planted rishlin, Bino griris and guruztraming.
This is a winery to visit if you like architecture.
From the 10 wooden doors that protect the crushing mat and the entrance to the building, to the floating crushing mat located above the pinot noir fermenter, there are no shortage of miracles worth thinking about.

The site is home to the first gentleman farmer\'s vineyards planted in pinot noir, chardonnay and rishlin in 2008.
Of the more than 2014 acres of pinot noir, there are four different Dijon clones.
The concept is to use multiple clones to mix a single variety in multiple blocks to create complexity.
It\'s not all pinot noir, there are commander Lei and Pinot Grimes, both of which add to the knowledge of the style and quality of winemaker Bill Pearson.
East kilona is becoming the Mecca of the producers of pinot noir, and Spierhead has now been identified as one of the best in the valley.
Be sure to pick some pinot noir wine while you\'re at the winery, but don\'t ignore ($23).

The back label is the best label in the business, as is the front label, packaging and POS.
Of course, none of these make a difference if your wine is forgotten, but at the beginning it gives the winery the possibility to find itself and make wine.
JoieFarm is led by one of the best Gamay Noirs in the valley, full of aromatic white wine and super fresh red wine.
JoieFarm takes food wine very seriously because Noble, a former chef, is very clear that all wines are better matched with food.
