Wedding Oak Winery 2016 Harvest: A challenging year, a stellar vintage

By Penny S. Adams
 
Heavy rain, hail, searing arid heat, followed by more sustained heavy rain. That sounds like a recipe for disaster for a farmer. That's what we faced this year. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: growing grapes in Texas ain't for the faint of heart. To be able to successfully harvest a high-quality crop takes vigilant vineyard management and a healthy dose of luck. It is well worth the effort. The best wines start in the vineyard. Early in the growing season, we experienced dry conditions which persisted from pruning through bud break. Fortunately, frequent heavy rainfall midseason allowed for larger grape clusters during the cell division stage.
