Mia’s Harvest Blog
How do I miss these things? I feel like I let my Fermentation readers down.
One of Napa Valley’s best know and most respected winemakers is offering a treat: A harvest blog.
Mia Klein owns Selene Winery in Napa Valley and is a sought after consulting winemaker. She’s been blogging this harvest since August. Mia has started working with Cathy Corison (one of my favorite winemakers) at Chappellet Winery, then worked with the great Tony Soter. Currently she also consults for Dalle Valle, Fisher and Bressler wineries.
Reading her entries you get a real sense of what its like to watch the sky and listen to what the temperature of the breeze is telling you about the progress of the harvest.
I should point out that this is one more blog from a winery. It’s a growing trend. My prediction: By harvest 2006 we’ll be able to read more than 50 blogs by American wineries alone.
