Winemakers say warmer weather is good for harvest

It's wine harvesting season on the Central Coast.

On Sunday, the Kelsey Winery in San Luis Obispo held a harvest concert event.

Right now, they're fermenting the grapes in order to make the wine, and a huge part of that is grape stomping.

Winemakers say the warmer weather has actually been good for the harvest.

"It's been a spectacular summer. We haven't had any rain. The little drizzle we had the other day didn't affect anything. Everything has been not too hot. We've had warm weather. We've had a couple 100 degree days in the North County and some 90's here," said Jac Jacobs, a winemaker at Kelsey Winery.

The harvest usually continues through the end of October. A couple years ago, it went longer because there was so much rain.
