First cases of 2010

September 3rd, 2010 | Uncategorized

My photo, taken only this morning, shows the first cases being delivered to a vineyard site, in anticipation of the 2010 vintage.

For the last week or so Angela has been busy in her hovel  laboratory analysing grape samples from different locations – it would appear from her analysis that some of the southern most vineyards might be picked as early as next week. Time and weather will determine exactly when….

After a long, dry summer our focus on the weather forecast becomes more intense – some weather sites are predicting rain at the beginning of next week, but with a return to fine weather by the end of the week. If this is correct, and the rain is not too heavy, then this will serve to clean the fruit, which may actually be a little dusty after the prolonged dry spell.
