2016 Harvest: Day 1

Har­vest is undoubt­ed­ly the most excit­ing time of year at Beck­men Vine­yards. Our year-round vine­yard crew is busy hand­pick­ing our grapes dur­ing the night and into the ear­ly morn­ing, deliv­er­ing them to the win­ery for our wine­mak­er, Steve Beck­men, and his team to turn into wine. From late August to ear­ly Novem­ber, we will be pro­cess­ing tons of grapes from the 150 acres of grapevines we grow. It is an excit­ing and dynam­ic process that varies every year, keep­ing us on our toes even after 22 vin­tages of mak­ing wine. Fol­low along as we doc­u­ment our 2016 har­vest season.

This year, we decid­ed to give our fans an insider’s look into what it takes to turn grapes into wine. We’ll be post­ing videos here every week show­ing you what we’re up to in the vine­yard and in the win­ery, break­ing down the wine­mak­ing process and explain­ing how we cre­ate such deli­cious wine.

Watch the video below to see how our har­vest began on August 232016!
