Wine grape growers were harvesting grapes about two weeks early this fall as drought, early-season frost and late-season extreme heat caused the grapes to begin raisining. About three-fourths of the wine grapes in Sonoma County have been picked. Yields for pinot noir and zinfandel have so far been lighter than previously expected.
