This year's vintage is certainly different from previous years. A wet winter, cool and wet summer, and very little sun. Verasion is patchy and the white varieties usually picked at the end of January/ mid February, look as though it will be the end of February. The last week we have seen lots of hot sun, so perhaps the reds will come in by the end of March, which is the usual time for our vineyard. Our poplar trees which during autumn are popular with photographers, have decided that autumn has arrived, and are already putting on their golden leaves. Here's to a successful harvest!
