There’s nice news out of California for wine lovers and wine businesses: the state is experiencing a record wine grape harvest. According to figures released by California’s Food & Agriculture Dept, the total harvest is up about 5% over the previous year. [level-members]

Erica Moyer of Riverbank, a grape and wine broker for Turrentine Brokerage in Novato told the Modesto Bee that “Consumers are in a great position because of the amount of wine that is coming out of California.”

Certainly something to keep in mind as these vintages become available.
