The vineyards of the Sonoma Valley are beginning to turn. I went on a scouting mission while tea and chat was going on just to see how they are coming along. These are from the Kunde Vineyards right across from us which seem to have the most color going so far. It is interesting as different varieties of grapes in different vineyards had barely begun to change. In fact one vineyard that had Syrah vines, the grapes were still on and had yet to be harvested.
