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.
