Tasting this Wednesday!
winter storm after the summer solstice
another remarkable weather event
don't know what it'll all mean for harvest 2013
late may: change in the weather
very very dry early season
started irrigating the vineyard in april instead of june
never expect frost after may 15th
but -- with vines in full bloom -- frost hit the bottom of the vineyard 21 may
about 20 vines were affected, they'll survive but without fruit this year
a change in the weather
is known to be extreme
but what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?
and I'm going out of my mind
oh, with a pain that stops and starts
like a corkscrew to my heart
Dylan's "You're a Big Girl Now"
vine in full bloom
frosted vine one row up
