 What a vintage 2014 has been! Two great years in a row, and the latest one promises to be one that  the varietals will shine in. Every barrel in the winery in is chockablock, the fermentation bench is just a  delight, and we can’t wait to try this year's wines.

Fighting Crab Paella Flowering, and a very busy time in the vineyard. As anyone who's driven past a local vineyard can tell  you,  it's all about growth right now; bright green fingers of vine reaching for the blue sky. And flowering. The  proper care of flowering vines means getting the most out of  any vintage. All across the grape-growing  parts of our region, the steady hum of tractors can be heard.

Asparagus and eggSpring in full swing now, except for the odd blustery and rainy day. Green buds out across the vineyard - a bit early this a year - and rhythmic swing of growing grapes and making wine starting all over again. Lots to do, so quick, easy and tasty meals are very much the order of the day.
