Kentucky Grape Harvest

Weather can make a big difference in the quality of wine produced each particular year. For the wineries around Lexington, Kentucky, the 2008 harvest was excellent. The summer of 2008 was hot and perhaps too dry but the resulting grapes have produced quality wines.

The summer of 2009 has been cooler than usual and this week when the vineyards are waiting for the grapes to reach ripeness, it has been raining on and off. Out of visiting eight wineries, except for one, all were determined not to harvest yet. These determined Kentuckians are waiting on Mother Nature to continue the ripening process before cold weather sets in.

May Kentucky wineries have a successful harvest in 2009!

Cheers! Kathy
