Is It Raining With You?

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.


Ridge Vineyards


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.

  1. I wish, I wish …………..
    I wish it would rain here in the south eastern corner of Great Britain. After two of the driest winters on record, we will have hosepipe bans as from the 1st April.
