Vineyard notes:
It is harvest time in Ohio Wine Country
For many, the months of September and October are the best time of year in the Buckeye State. The weather is spectacular. Under a warm autumn sun, brilliant blue skies are dotted with puffy white clouds. Glorious fall foliage provides a backdrop for weekends filled with clambakes, high school football games, and harvest festivals. Here in Ohio, we have an added bonus: as we drive along rural roads dotted with vineyards, the air is filled with the fragrance of ripening grapes.

It is harvest time in the our several ‘Wine Countries.’
Only a few locations in the world host the unique occurrence known as
‘The Crush.’ Now is the time to plan a daytrip to vineyards within a short drive of every Ohio resident.

With nearly two hundred producing wineries and literally thousands of acres of grapes, planning a trip requires little more that a couple of gallons of gas in the tank of the car. However, you should call ahead to make sure your favorite winery opens their cellars during harvest. And since this is the most critical time of the year for the vintners, be a little patient if they cannot accommodate a tour on your schedule. You may need to wait until a tractor unloads its grapes or a crusher finishes its job before your hands on experience can begin. However, the wait will be worthwhile …….. the process is fascinating.

Each grape variety and in each section of the state, grapes ripen on their own timetables. Generally, however, grapes are picked in the cool of the morning and transported to the waiting wine cellar in the early afternoon. The goal is to crush the grapes at their optimum quality – one reason why vineyards are located adjacent to winery facilities. Some grapes are handpicked into lugs, others are picked with mechanical harvesters. In each case, getting the fruit to the awaiting presses in good condition is essential.

Initially, the grapes are separated from their stems in a mechanical crusher. This piece of equipment breaks the skins and creates a thick slurry which is either pumped directly to the presses [for white wines] or put into large vats for initial fermentation on the skins [for red wines.]

White juices are collected, settled and then pumped into chilled fermentation tanks where specially selected yeasts interact with the natural sugars and produce alcohol and throw off carbon dioxide. Throughout the upcoming year, the juices are settled, clarified, filtered and eventually ‘become’ wine.

Red juices spend several days or weeks on the skins. The conversion of sugar into alcohol begins in open tanks which develop frothy ‘caps.’ These look very much like a pretty grape ice cream soda. The cap hardens slightly, so on a regular schedule, the winemaker pushes it down with either by hand with a large wooden paddle or in small tanks or automatically by large, specially designed mechanical tanks. The ‘becoming’ wine is then transferred to oak barrels or stainless tanks to finish fermentation. Depending on the winemakers’ intentions, the liquid is then transferred to other oak barrels for a limited time before it is settled and ready for bottling later in the year.

Vintners believe that ‘wine is born in the vineyard’…and this is the time of the year to see the ‘birth’ firsthand.
