Dates & Open Spots:

As you may already know wine making is dependent on the weather that particular year, since the sugars in the grapes need to be ripe for harvest. The white grapes are harvested before the red grapes, but in general the rule of thumb is that the harvest is done in September;  we will be taking 3 groups on the following dates :
