Pruning Work Party

Posted by Judy Phelps on March 31, 2009

Reminded me a little about the Tom Sawyer bit about getting help whitewashing his fence. Wine Club volunteers came out to help prune the vineyard.Pruning Work PartyThe vines being worked on were planed in 2005 and we harvested our first crop off them last year. About 20 people attacked the vines with shearers in hand. After about 2 hours we retired to the barrel room for cigars and a taste of wine made from these same vines last year. Lovely. Peppery, tannic needs another year but tasting good right now.
