In the vineyard now, the sun shines most of the time and sometimes it burns the skin we hid away all winter. The hills begin to brown, first on the more exposed slopes and eventually all across. In contrast to the dying grass the vine shoots can easily grow an inch a day. Everything is changing.
Feels pretty good!
On the vine shoots we can see the flower buds that will soon bloom and set the grapes that will become our 2011 wines. While we can’t really predict the crop from here we can’t help ourselves. Most shoots have two good sized clusters and everything looks clean.
Looks pretty good!
