It's that time of year again!
We all remember Lucy and Ethel's grape stomping escapade, but crushing grapes is a lot more sophisticated these days!
Vineyards in France and Italy...
...and right here in Sonoma County are harvesting the grapes to be crushed.
In Vignamaggio, Italy the process begins...
This is where the magic happens!
Grapes into wine!
"Grapes on the vine, in clusters they're hung...
Soon to be wine, so run fox run."
Or should I say, "Run, Bear run!"
No, our table grapes won't become wine, but they sure are good to eat and make great jelly.
This is only the tip of the iceberg!
I just love this time of year!
