A look at August in Northwest wine country
As we take a look at August through photos we took, one thing becomes clear (as if it already wasn’t): Harvest is hot and heavy.
One of the earliest starts to harvest in the history of Washington took place when Treveri Cellars brought in Chardonnay on Aug. 7 from a small vineyard near the Rattlesnake Hills town of Zillah.
Harvest never, ever starts before the annual Auction of Washington Wines, but this year’s event was filled with winemakers shaking their heads while also helping to raise a record $2.5 million.
We also got out the Great Northwest Wine quadcopter and headed over to Barnard Griffin in Richland, Wash., as grapes came in.
And a couple of trips through the Yakima Valley yielded many interesting visual perspectives.
Here are a few of our favorite pics we snapped off throughout August. Click those little arrows above to see them for yourself.
