It is said that California has two kinds or weather – nice or unusual. This year has been mostly of the latter. When I walk through the vineyard I am struck by how late the vines have flowered and what a light crop has set. Mostly the reds, the Chardonnay has a fairly normal crop.
This past Spring I decided I was going to collect and plant Black Walnuts from the tree near the house. An amazing number of them sprouted and I now have a row of Walnut seedlings next to the fence of the large garden area. This Winter when they go dormant I will see about digging them up and transplanting them bare-root.
It is one of those things that you embark on very casually and realize later that you have created yet another thing to keep track of and care for. However if I can get them through this summer and get them in their final spot next year I may rest assured they will be relatively carefree and an improvement to the property. They grow well around here.
We have released the first estate bottle fermented sparkling wine from the Estate Chardonnay here. It is dryly austere and, refuses to be taken lightly. I guess I should say that I don’t like the wine to be the center of attention at a meal or other occasion. Its job is adjunct and complementary. This Champagne, however, commands your attention. Not rude but assertive. If you decide to try it always chill the bottle for a few hours and serve in a pristine flute.
Thanks for reading.
