The Vine Chronicles (Week 27) - September 23, 2007

Well, week 27 (more than half of the year) concluded with 4/10 of an inch of rain and cooler temperatures. Maybe a harbinger of fall or winter? The grapes are maturing and uniform color is now pretty consistent. Quality grapes require a great deal of diligence, we prune, thin, leaf pull, than thin again, to get one to two clusters per spur and only 4 spurs per side. More to come!
