It’s that time of year. Area vineyards are busy harvesting some varieties of grapes. We caught up with Brian Goff and his helpers over at Afton Mountain Vineyard & Winery (AMV) as they were unloading some freshly picked grapes. AMV recently sold to Tony & Elizabeth Smith who have been busy putting their personal touches on the operation that’s been owned by Tom and Shinko Corpora since 1988. The 12 acres of vineyards were planted in the late 1970s by David Mefford and sold about 10 years later to the Corporas. We first told you about the sale and new owners back in late March 2009.

Many other vineyards and grape growers are also busy picking during the past several weeks.

Many area wineries are also releasing some of the latest wines!

Cheers!
