Harvest by hand: Like a rolling grape ….

in midst harvesting chaos, this is to say a massive big “thank you” to everyone who came along last Saturday, to help us harvest the largest of our three “Stueckerl” or rows of vines.  Dylan may have been on our mind, as we cut out bits of mould from grape bunches of high sugar, but also high acidity.  As dogs and parrots started to complain where the fun program for the day was. As the coffee flow was restored, thanks to a neighbour coming to the harvest.  As we experienced every weather, from fog to rain, to freezing cold, to sunny. As we contemplate what to improve next year.  Very exciting times.  Have I said thank you yet? (and thank you to our friend Paul for creating such great ‘bigger picture’ shots that we did not have before.)
