2016 Harvest at Opus One

2016 Napa Valley Harvest Report with Michael Silacci of Opus One

Play

Join us at Opus One Winery in Napa Valley to experience and celebrate the 2016 harvest. It’s fully under way over these past few weeks. We visited the prized To-Kalon Vineyards to experience the night harvest. Under the lights, vineyard workers stay cool and move quickly to capture the cool hours and maximize their work load. We followed the grapes back to the winery as well. Please take a look at the photo gallery for photos and listen, at Winemaker Michael Silacci, winemaker since the inception of Opus One in 2004,  talks about his winemaker technique, philosophy and insights into this spectacular 2016 harvest. Follow their harvest yourself through the Opus One Facebook Page
