Grapes are between 18 to 22 Brix. We pick between 24.5 to 26. That means we are less than one month away. In the 17 years Hidden Oak Winery has been picking grapes at our location. It’s the earliest in our history. Why? The weather has been ideal. Warm days, cold nights. If you want to taste the grapes before they are picked, you have to come by and I will walk you through the vineyard where you can taste the four different varietals we grow here.
