Well it seems Summer is not finished with us yet. We are in the middle of another heat wave. There is no relief in sight for us in the forecast for the coming week.

This week in the vineyard:
I have not been able to spend much time in the vineyard this week, as I have had a case of Bronchitis. I am pleased to say that I am finally starting to improve.
We have only picked 2 blocks of grapes this week. However all of our Shiraz is now gone. The Mad dog Sangiovase is also safely tucked away in a tank. I have started to think about cover cropping and our winter work. Some rain would be nice anytime from now on!
