There were many struggles that the Midnight Cellars estate vineyards faced in the 2022 growing season. Following California climate trends, there was a continuous water shortage throughout the year. To stress vines further during harvest, there was a twelve day heat spell at the end of August and beginning of September. This caused our winery team to work at an exceedingly rushed pace. High heat was followed by an unusual rain storm in mid-September. With the entire region facing the irregular fluctuation in climate, finding labor for picking was scarce. We were lucky to bring in the majority of our crop before the heat and rain over influenced the quality. We had a low yield of high-quality and exceptional fruit.
