#VineWatch13: Week 10!

Can you believe it’s been ten weeks already?

Ten weeks!

And yet, still so far to go. So many hurdles, so many milestones … budbreak, veraison, harvest … ah, to dream …

But ten weeks is special, and these vines are special, and they look special, and today is special.

At Lytton Springs, beauty is as beauty is; unchanging, royal, mystic, zenful, and beatific …


An alternate universe of Munchian posture imprinted on Pissarrolian serenity …


And the mountain, oh, the mountain, yes the

mountain is alive with the

sound of busy fingers, tying

tendrils to their trellises,

imprinting on their futures all the

story of their mountain friction ridges.


Meaning, our vine has had itself tied!



Please stay tuned as we follow our lovely vines through the 2013 vintage!
