During this time of year, about the only thing that concerns us in the vineyard is making sure the vines don't wash away. This is by far the quietest time in the vineyard. The vines get a well deserved break before we start all over again in the Spring. In the winery we are still finishing the 2012 wines and watching over wine of previous years. In general, this is a time to breathe some fresh air and relax with our friends. I hope you pay us a visit so we can share some stories and wish you Happy Holidays.
