Chardonnel is ready to begin picking

Chardonnel is ready to pick. The sugar level is up to 24 brix on some, and 20-21 on most of it. I estimate that we have 800 lbs plus hanging on the vines. This is the best Chardonnel we have had since we started growing it. It will make some good wine or jam/jelly if desired. For those that are not familiar with Chardonnel, it is a French Hybrid grape that is half Chardonnay and half Seyval. It is one of the better white wine grapes.
