(WUSA) -- We're waiting to see whether the remnants of Hurricane Isaac will end up damaging Virginia's grape crop.

Winemakers in central Virginia say this year had been great for their vineyards -- until this week. Rain at this point in the season can dilute the flavor of the grapes.So, some growers opted to pick all the ripe grapes they had a few days ago before Isaac arrived in the area.

As wineries entertain customers with tastings, growers are keeping their eyes on the skies. After an extremely wet 2011, they're hoping they've timed this year's harvest just right.
