Texas Wine at Grapefest September

In Texas vineyards the grape harvest wraps up and farmers have a chance to unwind after those grueling 16 + hour days. Sunny weather helps vines build carbohydrate reserves to make it through the winter and produce new shoots in the spring.

In the winery, the grape skins (called the cap), which float to the top during red wine fermentation, are "punched down" on a daily basis to aerate the wine, moisten the skins, and promote color extraction. This can be done by hand or machine.

September is a great month for festivals and events to celebrate the new vintage.
