We are now 3 weeks into the new year and still no signs of the grapes ripening. I keep walking the vineyard and searching for the first red berries to emerge. We haven’t had many really hot days.
We have been getting a bit of rain (26mm last Wednesday) but fortunately it has fined up quickly. Sun shines and wind blows and the vines dry quickly. So it looks like it will be at least early March before harvest begins.
