Kathleen Inman of Inman Family Wines in the Russian River Valley said she also was surprised with the perseverance of this year’s fruit as May’s weather, with some overcast days and wind, had her initially thinking as much as 60% of her crop could be wiped out.

“I have been amazed at how beautiful this crop looks,” Inman said. She has 10.5-acre estate vineyard and expects this year’s yield to be slightly above normal.
