The long rows (and a lot of footsteps!) ….

I thought I would share an image of the new spring growth at work (taken just over a week ago), which is going at what seems like a rate of knots.  This is from the block that has the longest rows – each is approximately 222 metres (242 yards) long – a lot of walking and far easier on a quad bike if you are in a hurry!

Berry nice!

I promise not to bore you with pictures of grapes during my harvest, but….

… more Pinot Noir grapes. It is a sight I’ve seen so many times, but I always ‘see’ landscapes in the mounds of fruit. This time the stalks look like vine trunks….  🙂

Harvest time is here….

A quick post as very busy times now. Not the best of images but thought I would share what I see and think about most of the time at the moment!  The weather is proving difficult – after months of no rain and now when we need it dry, there are periodic days of wetness or drizzle. Today was a beautiful day with a good pick.  This is a bunch of Pinot Noir taken last week after heavy fog.
