It's Starting!

It's just amazing to watch the vines go from brown sticks to fully leafed out with fruit turning purple in only a few months. These, of course, are Tempranillo grapes, always the first to start the ripening process. These 3 year old vines are from our upper vineyard. 2010 will be their maiden voyage; picked, crushed, made into wine for the first time. That is a good thing as the older, lower vineyard was hit hard by the May 1st frost. We will have a harvest this year.
