At Archery Summit Winery in Dayton, crews armed themselves with buckets and clippers as they raced to get as many grape clusters off the vines as they could.
Their goal was to pick about half the vineyard before the soaking rains move in this weekend.
What would normally take about three days, crews will do in about a day and a half. The rest of the grapes will be picked next week following the storms.
Vineyard manager Leigh Bartholomew is concerned too much rain can ruin some of the fruit.
