Pinot Noir picking on the hottest day, above Monterey Bay (does that rhyme?)

One of advantages of my cycling club is networking! In this case, several of us were helping a club member pick about 600 pounds of Pinot Noir grapes, back on September 7th.

We started at 7AM, on the hottest day of the year.

It was headed for record-breaking 109 degrees in San Jose, so starting just after sunrise was a very good idea! (Monterey Bay is that blue area, just below the morning haze, beyond Watsonville.)

Done in about 90 minutes! No wine sampling or lunch this time. The grapes had to go straight to the crusher. An interesting and new experience!
