Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you?
Dear Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart,
To answer your question of January 16, 1984, yes, it is raining with us.
Which is, to say the least, very good news!
Per our Vice-President of Vineyards Operations, David Gates:
“…(the rain) will fill up the soil profile with enough water to help get the vines to bloom without any supplemental irrigation in this dry year. Of course we are a bit concerned about the potential for frost after the storms, but we will face that if it happens…”
I also spoke to Monte Bello viticulturist Kyle Theriot today. I asked him, “How are you?” And he answered, “It’s raining.” And he smiled. A really, really, really big smile.
It was raining with him too.
Thank you to Jason Shelton and Amy Monroe for the pics!
