Absolutely beautiful day
I finally got a little more dirty today at the winery, sorting a few tons of syrah and grenache from southern Oregon and cleaning up the line, which can be fun the first few times of the season. The fruit looked and tasted good. Now the sun's out and mild weather's setting in for a nice long stretch. People were picking last weekend, but now things are going to go into high gear with the bulk of the pinot noir crop coming in this week. For me, it starts tomorrow morning early with a run to drop bins at the vineyard we're bringing in Tuesday. I'm more than ready to get going.
