For growers and winemakers, there’s no more beautiful nor frantic time of year than harvest, and contributing photographer Richard Duval was all over the state this year capturing this frenzied season.

“At Sagemoor Vineyard – one of the top vineyards in the state – as the pace of picking increased, the days got longer and scheduling resembled a busy airport,” Duval said. “I thought this scene of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grabbing the last bit of sun under the sunny Sagemoor skies nicely captured the beauty of the season.”
