The Vine Chronicles - Week 32 (October 22, 2007)

As of today our estate vineyard Sangiovese is:
West section 20.8
House section 20.4
East section 19.6

This is about a 0.8 brix change since last week. I would like to make arrangements to pick in on 10/31 or 11/1. This is when we picked it last year. We are getting some raisining which might bump the brix in the tank. There is some yellowing of the canopy now as well as more bird damage.
