As harvest winds down, Central Coast grower reports improving yields as crop quality remains high

“The quality of the grapes is absolutely outstanding,” he says. This follows a dry, warmer-than-usual growing season and ideal weather for ripening the fruit, Merrill adds.

With much of the 2014 harvest behind him, Central Coast wine grape grower Dana Merrill reports yields have been average or lower while quality has been high. “The quality of the grapes is absolutely outstanding,” he says. This follows a dry, warmer-than-usual growing season and ideal weather for ripening the fruit, Merrill adds.

His company, Mesa Vineyard Management, Templeton, Calif., owns and manages 6,000 acres of vineyards in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Monterey
