Do We Have Grapes?

Right now we are nervous. A huge frost swept through Northern CA last weekend and damaged a lot of the wine crop. Early reports are 10-15% of the vines in Sonoma are damaged. Our Pinot supplier sent an email saying "I guess I've got a lot of frost damage!" Not good. Not good at all.

We are scrambling to find out what the damage is and if it means we are SOL with our AV fruit. What's our backup plan? Do we look farther North (Humboldt)? Do we look South (Santa Cruz)? How much are we willing to pay? Does anyone even read this blog? Yes, those are all important questions. Answers are coming...
