Mother Nature can be a tricky thing to deal with. It can be friend or foe. Several weeks ago, we got hit hard with another May frost, all of our vines were terribly burnt at the top or down to the cordon. Primary buds all pretty much gone. So what do you do? You move on, clean it up, and cross your fingers for a secondary bud break. Life of a farmer is not easy!
Ed and I have started our "second life" here at our Farm, DeMello Vineyards. Follow our progress in the vineyard, in our tasting room, Third Hill Winery, with all of our successes, and yes, some failures. We'll also suggest pairings and receipes.
