Sonoma County Vintage Report: 2015

Two words best summarize the 2015 vintage: EARLY & SHORT. When I reported on the 2014 vintage last year, I told you that since moving to Sonoma County in 2001, it was the earliest on record. During this past spring, I predicted that our harvest yields in 2015 would be less than in previous years thanks to our drought and drier than normal conditions during the months of January through March.
