Picked, lugged, and forklifted onto the crush pad. These Pinot grapes are from the Russian River Valley. The vineyard is across the road from the crush facility so they arrive quickly on tractors. Shooting during harvest reminds me of when I used to shoot auto racing, fast furious and you have to stay out of the way or get run over! The only difference is at the track they put a wrist band on you
with your blood type, just in case.
