Napa Valley’s vintners are celebrating another early and excellent quality year. As winemaking activity transitions from the vineyard to the cellar, we invited some of our 500 winery members to share their impressions of the vintage and to respond to the most frequently asked questions about this year’s harvest.

In spite of the drought and the South Napa earthquake, vintners are using words like “quality,” “depth of flavor” and “excellent” to describe their expectations for the vintage. Many are also noting “perfect weather,” “abundant crop” and “good fortune” among the blessings they are counting in a season where Mother Nature threw a rockin’ curveball.
