Our first harvest is in the can… literally! A bit skimpy because the vines are young and the summer weather was challenging, but the quality of the grapes we got was very, very good. We are fortunate to have a good situation: lots of sun, the right kind of breeze, soil with plenty of clay, and a very steep slope to help run all that water away from the vines.
Although the pickings were slim, we couldn’t have gotten it done without the help of our friends: San Pietro, Lidia, Dmitri (and Gigi on the tractor). We made quick work of the grapes and then enjoyed a nice pranzo together!
Next up: the red!
