Spring is here, and so is the rain

Château Julien Estate:
High 62 Low 47
Rain / Thunder

Lockwood Valley Vineyard:
High 61 Low 43
Rain / Thunder

Something new I'd like to start is giving the current weather conditions with every one of my posts. Everyone likes to know what is happening to the grapes. You will see conditions for both the estate and the vineyard. Château Julien estate is located 5 miles east of Carmel, CA and the Pacific Ocean. The lockwood vineyard is about an hour and a half southeast from the estate, near King City, CA.

Last month we saw the wettest month around here for quite some time. I believe it rained some 23 days out of the entire month. This month has started out with the same trend. Will the sun ever come out and dry us out a bit? One could only hope. So as I sit here and look out to see the rain just coming down and no blue sky in sight, it's another rainy day in Carmel. Although this time we don't get to play heads-up 7-up or play board games...
