#VineWatch13: Week 24!

I spent a bit of time today with our viticulturists from both Lytton Springs & Monte Bello; Will Thomas & Kyle Theriot, respectively.

And you know what?

They’re getting a bit antsy.

And that’s a good sign. That means we’re getting somewhere.

Mind you, we’re not there yet. Not by any means; meaning, there is no there there; not yet. But they’re starting to make Pinot Noir jokes, and that’s always a good sign.

And how are our vines looking? Calling Lytton Springs, how you?

Yeah, you good. Or, put another way, you’ve come a long way, baby! You ain’t that skinny lil’ fella gettin’ sand in the face at the beach no more!

And how you, Monte Bello?

Wow, you look great too! Just a whole different vibe about you …

I don’t know what it is, just somethin’ … different about you, somehow.
