Weisinger Winery has earliest crush on record
- A variety of factors contributed to an early harvest at Ashland's oldest commercial vineyard, but harvest of other varietals is expected to continue for two months.
ASHLAND — From a subzero winter cold snap to the warmest July on record, weather played a role in the earliest crush in the history of Weisinger's Winery.
While there are many grape varieties to be picked in the coming weeks, never before has Weisinger harvested its sauvignon blanc — one of the region's oldest Bordeaux crops — in August. Usually, harvest begins the second or third week of September, General Manager and winemaker Eric Weisinger said.
