Sierra Foothills/Amador Veraison Report & Water Notes: Karly Wines, Plymouth
Lawrence L “Buck” Cobb, president of Karly Wines, Plymouth, Amador County writes: “After a late start and cool spring and early summer, the weather has been perfect, even with the recent week-long 100 degree-spell – it set the taste in Zinfandel! We are on track to start harvest at the normal time after Labor Day."
” We dry farm, so who cares about water? Labor supply, now there is something to worry about.”
Buck adds this P.S.: "Incidentally, we just sold Karly winery to Turley Wine Cellars of St Helena. Karly and I are very happy to lay down the load and live a little after thirty-two years. This is a gain for Amador County.”
