February in the Vineyard


It's been relentlessly hot, the water in the dams has nearly run out, the fruit is ripening (these are pinot grapes) and the sugar levels are rising.  Time for harvest!

    1. Yeah I love those bunches that are so perfectly and tightly packed. They taste amazing now too, like little bombs of sweet, concentrated grape juice.
