Leaves on trees and vines are changing color at Airlie Hills Winery. A picking crew took advantage of favorable conditions to pick grapes on Monday.
Airlie Winery owner Mary Olson was among those picking grapes on Monday. She said pickers are in high demand on the ever-more infrequent dry days this season.
