Buttercup and I took a spin through the southwest third of the vineyard last night, just to see how the berries look. And they look great!
Our vines are young and the spring and summer have been tough, weather-wise. My (admittedly) amateur guess is that we will get about 250kg of grapes. That’s okay for the first harvest, but not really enough to hire help, sell the grapes and the like. So the plan is to make an inaugural “house” wine… by hand (and maybe G’s feet).
Stay tuned… should be a lot of fun ahead!
