Sonoma Valley High School students in Future Farmers of America harvested their first winegrape crop of Sauvignon Blanc! The vineyard is grown on the school campus and overseen by SVVGA Member Phil Coturri of Enterprise Vineyards. The students did a great job throughout the year pruning and tending to the vineyard and picked the winegrapes this morning which are headed for Repris Wines. Congratulations on a great program and inaugural harvest! More photos on our #Facebook page. #SonomaValleyWine #TheRootsRunDeep #FFA #SVNextGen #SCHarvest #sauvignonblanc #svhs @pcoturri #harvest
