Just last night Walsh team members cluster sorting Gewürztraminer in the Sonoma Valley. Walsh has clients that span a number of different growing regions (Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Coast, Carneros, Napa Valley, Rutherford, Stags Leap, etc). Further, Walsh client properties contain a great many different varieties of cultivars which reach maturity at varying times of the season. This diversity, of region and varieties, results in a prolonged harvest (~75 harvest days) for our crews and equipment. For our clients, that translates into: high quality of operations, reliability, and significant operating efficiencies.
Cluster sorting in this video was done to eliminate leaves, Botrytis, and sun affected fruit. Harvest occurred in 44 year old head trained Gewürztraminer at Sonoma's Rhinefarm Vineyard.
