2012 pinot noir grapes picked earlier this week at Macari Vineyards on the North Fork — destined for sparkling wine.

The 2012 harvest season has begun in New York, with pinot noir and chardonnay being picked across the state for sparkling wine production.

The past few years, we’ve made a concerted effort to publish as many harvest photos as we can — so please send them our way along with some basic harvest data — tonnage, brix, etc. and anything interesting about the grapes that you’d like to include.

Good luck to all of our friends in the New York wine industry!
