Karamoor Estate

Another Labor Day has come and gone!

Wow!  Labor Day 2017 is in the books!  Crazy.  This summer really flew by.  I mean, I feel like I just got married yesterday, but really it's been 5 months!  Where does the time go?  I have had a great summer that ended with a great family weekend up in New Hampshire.  The perfect endcap!  Nothing better than a weekend with family!  Though, the weather definitely could have been a little more cooperative... I am sure a vast amount of the country can attest to that.  These hurricanes are so heartbreaking - it is just really crazy to see what type of devastation Mother Nature is truly capable of.  Our hearts here at Karamoor go out to everyone affected, we hope that Irma finds her way out to sea and spares the rest of Florida, and our fingers are crossed that Jose doesn't make landfall.

When we started this grape growing season, we had a very warm spring.  We were 2 weeks ahead of last year up until, roughly, the end of July.  Now, we're caught up to last year and this weather is kind of threatening to push us past last year's harvest dates.  The after effects of Harvey were felt here at the vineyard last week - where it dumped plenty of rain and slowed down the grape ripening quite a bit.  We are preparing for a similar rainfall from Irma...which will slow us down even more.  As I've mentioned before, rainfall during harvest is relatively catastrophic when it comes to wine grapes.  Hopefully we will be able to get some of our white grapes off the vine before the next bout of rain comes or we could lose the crop...and if we lose the crop, that means that there won't be any 2017 Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.  The vineyard team is doing everything in its power to make sure that doesn't happen - we will keep you all in the loop as things continue to develop.

On a happier note, we will be sending out our wine club shipments this month!  They will be going out the last week of September and they will include some of our newly bottled 2015 reds and 2016 whites.  I hope that a majority of you were able to take advantage of our major sale in August on our 2014 reds, 2014 Chardonnay, and 2015 Sauvignon Blanc.  We really moved quite a lot of inventory, and we thank you for being such wonderful customers!  If you're not a member of our newsletter group, join!  It is how we send out all of our sales and up-to-date information on all things Karamoor!  Until next time...
