For this week’s Brewvine, Andrea Ludema and chief photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take us to Good Harbor Vineyards in Leelanau County, where they’re enjoying what’s left of summer and getting ready for a busy fall.

“We’re not excited that summer is coming to an end. Nobody is. But with summer coming to an end, that always mean that means that harvest is upon us.”

Summer may be drawing to a close, but the great growing conditions have Good Harbor Vineyards optimistic about the coming grape harvest.

“It has certainly been a warm, growing season, a really good growing season,” said Taylor Simpson, co-owner of Good Harbor Vineyards. “We did have a stretch of drought. Everybody experienced that. But luckily Mother Nature did send some rain our way. So the the fruit is progressing really well. This next month is going to be pretty critical for the development of the sugars. And we’re going to be going through a version where the fruit is going to start to turn. And we’re just gearing up, just kind of it’s a waiting game and hoping Mother Nature gives us the weather that we need.”
