from quadcopter 4.they'd be doing that even in a dry year, but 2017 has changed the workload and the strategy of those working among the vines. "if anything we're going to have too much growth. that's one thing you run into in a wet year is that the vines will tend to grow a little bit too wild."winemaker peter velleno (vuh-leen-oh) says that can negatively affect the quality of the wine.but don't go worrying about your vino adventures getting ravaged.the experts here have ways of getting the vines back into balance."what we will do is leave some extra shoots on the vines and that allows us to fine tune the load on the vine going down the road."in a very dry 2015, the individual berries were smaller, had less moisture, but produced more concentrated flavors."this will fall off."this year, the grape crop will be more 'normal,' if you will.right now the grape bunches look like this. but expect them to mature into berries that will produce ámore juice.standup - "so the biggest effect the wet

winter had on the vineyard was actually the pruning schedule, which already happened. but one thing's for sure - winemakers don't want any more rain.""while it impacts our operations it doesn't have as big of an impact on the vine as it would if it were to rain, say, today or closer to harvest."while this week's rain doesn't come at the best time, vintners could still resort to thinning the grape clusters themselves.that strategy means while there will be slightly few grapes to harvest they should be ripening welland on schedule. castello di amorosa's cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and other crops will lead to about 30 thousand cases of wine , which will be sold exclusively inside the 13th-century- inspired castle on the grounds. othe wineries in the area will also be filling bottles, helping to bring in an expected $13 billion dollars to napa county's economy this year alone.the harvest is still two or three months out, so it's still a little early to know much about átaste of the wine, but"there's no reason to think it's going to be a problem at all."if mother nature keeps everything in line.you may just owe her a big 'thank you' later.in calistoga, spencer blake, kron four news.

takes the lead." durant: "i've been working on that shot for my whole life, so for that to go in, that was liberating"> (darya) today kevin durant could be on his way to getting the ring that he's always wanted. we still have to talk about game three because it was historic with 15 wins. gary says it was one of the greatest game in warriors history. not only was it record setting, but both teams played their hearts out. gary says cleveland gave them their best shot, and the warriors stood up to it. the last three minutes were so amazing where the warriors were down six points and then they go on an unanswered 11-0 run, cleveland trying and
9:47 am
missing eight shots. even after the game, with all of the excitement, the guys new their work wasn't done. (darya) i definitely played a role. do you think it will play a role tonight, will the cavs just be out of gas? gary says he was watching the press conferences yesterday and

lebron was very good, talking about teddy roosevelt and being philosophical. he says even by his body language you can tell lebron thinks it's over, no team has ever come back from down three games, the cavs just ran into a better team with better talent. and that's what he said right after the game... lebron and kyrie were giving it everything, but he says they have never played against such firepower. and in the press conference yesterday, his answer was interesting when asked about the super team thing. he didn't blame k-d or the warriors for teaming up, he said the warriors are not ruining basketball. (darya) he has every intention of being

an owner one day. gary says the other times before and after games he seemed a little uptight... but not yesterday. gary thinks he accepted the fact that it may be over for them. he says more times than not, the teams withhe best talent wins. and that goes for any business in the world. gary says if you don't have the talent you can't do it, and he doesn't think cleveland can match up to the warriors. i think this finally puts the argument to bed that kd was not wrong to go to the warriors. lebron shut all of those things we've been hearing this year about kd and it not being fair that he is on the warriors. gary says the new thing is the talk about
9:50 am
the warriors being so good it's going to ruin the league and the regular season will be terrible because everybody expects the warriors to roll. but lets not get ahead of ourselves and lets just enjoy what has been the most amazing year for the warriors i think yet, and they have had several amazing years. gary says to look at durant, curry, draymond, and klay thompson. none of the four has reached age 30 yet. it's not over. (darya) and if it's over tonight, the warriors will lose out on 22 million dollars by not having a game 5 or 7 ioakland. gary says he talked to a guy the
9:51 am
other day that told him abc grosses 450 million dollars a game. it sounds like an incredible amount of money from televising the game. but in the long run, the warriors are already in 3rd on the forbes list of most valuable teams. they are worth 2.6 billion, so they will be even more valuable and 22 million is chump change. gary wants to know how much oracle will make for the watch party tonight. it's $20 for a seat and $10 to park... compared to cheap seats for playoff tickets are $500, and parking is normally $40. but you're not watching a game, you're paying all this money to watch tv. gary
