From Matt Gillies, GM at Peconic Bay Winery:
"You know I'll bring the rains in by saying this, but I don't think I've seen more potential in a vintage in my near 30 years here. Even a bit of nasty weather will have a hard time eradicating the benefits of this prolonged dry spell and this wonderful stretch of clear, crisp weather with only a few rain events in the past couple of months.
We have not begun picking anything yet. Our first grapes into the cellar will be our Riesling and we'll be watching them much more closely next week."
