Pick Me Squeeze Me

Harvest Season is coming SOON!

We have put together a schedule of estimated harvest dates for Miletta’s 2024 harvest. Once you sign-up for a particular Pick Me Squeeze Me date you will begin receiving grape progress reports about 10-14 days ahead of harvest. This will be a brief summary of pH measurement and Sugar content measurement from the grapes you sign up for for harvest. From these field measurements, Mick, our winemaker, will make progress reports and harvest predictions for the actual harvest day.

Things the winemaker considers besides the above are; average daily temperatures, night-time temperatures, rainfall or lack there of, and the harvester availability for the day planned. Other than hand harvested grapes, all other PMSM dates will be during the week, starting with coffee & pastry at 6:30 a.m.

Included in the event are field harvest viewing; grape destemming & crushing, transfer to press, tasting fresh juice from the press, and transfer of juice to the settling tanks. Your morning will end with a lunch with the harvest team on the winery floor, where you can interact with the crew, ask questions that you’ve been dying to ask.

Please be sure to wear comfortable footwear as there will be uneven ground in the field you will be walking on. Plus, you will be around machines that can be dangerous if you get too close or touch in the wrong location, so viewing areas will be established for everyone’s safety.
