I lost my 2011 Isabella to a freak storm about 10 days ago, 8" of rain, 40 to 50 mph wind for about a day. When it was gone so were about 400# of Isabella. Next year.... I think losing this year's crop was why I didn't open a bottle of Isabella tonight, made it seem more valuable to me.
It was a great year for our Norton and even our Cabernet Sauvignon, so nothing to complain about here!

"Look down the slopes as you approach Ulupalakua, and you will see the flourishing vines of Tedeschi Vineyards. Here, carnelian, syrah, chenin blanc, chardonnay, malbec and viognier thrive at an 1,800-foot elevation in Haleakala’s rich, volcanic soil—the secret ingredient of successful winemaking in the tropics."

You know they grow vinifera grapes in all kinds of places like Thailand. You can actually grow vinifera in places like Hawaii. I've been to the vineyard on the Big Island and it's up quite a bit in elevation and it was very chilly at night up there. You can modify a location with elevation so there is almost seasons that high in elevation. The other way to "trick" the vines into thinking they've been through dormancy is to strp the leaves off the vine. You can do this by pulling all the leaves off the vine or using a defoliante. Not saying the wine is very good, but it can be done!

You guys do realize that this is an 8 year old thread?
Holy cow, I totally missed that!
And to think, this morning I thought to myself, "I forgot to welcome that new guy from Hawaii to the forum".
