It's a busy time of year in Napa. Vineyard managers are nervously checking weather reports, hoping to let the grapes get a tiny bit riper before the rain sets in. Early every morning the grapes arrive by the truckload to wineries all over town, filling up the tanks as they ferment away.
As part of a press group touring Louis M. Martini and William Hill Estate last week, I got the chance to check out a little winemaking behind the scenes. For a quick look at the making of the 2010 vintage, check out the slideshow!
