It's easy to forget that fruit winemakers don't have the same schedule that grape winemakers do... but Carlo reminds us with this picture and a note saying:
"While many wineries' busy time of year is fall, many fruit winemakers are out already toiling at this time of year. Currant and raspberry season are at their high point. In the Hudson Valley, where cassis is one of the fastest-growing categories, and with good reason, Hudson-Chatham, Tousey, Brookview Station, and Clinton Vineyards are all in the middle of fruit wine production."
