Nice camera angles. You should do this for a living!

Do lots of winemakers do saignée (bleed-off) up there for Pinot?


This is the second NE piece I've seen this year in which the fruit looked really... big, I guess. Are berries up there typically larger? Or am I losing my mind or something?


No one I know up here does a saignée other than FRW and this is the first time they've done it as far as I know.


I use a macro lens so maybe that's what your seeing, lol. Not sure if the berries are any larger than FL as I've never seen the fruit down there because the canopy is always hiding it ;)

I don't know anyone else using saignee either. I have found that using the right sized fermentation tank (ratio of cap surface area to tank volume)and extended maceration time result in better color/mouthfeel in years like this. Our berries were small this year as compared to last year - I would have thought the berries would have been large due to the rain.

It's good you are having fun with the camera.
