Better Late Than Never! #VineWatch13: Week 22!

As you may have gleaned from recent posts, I’ve been away in the beautiful wilds of Penticton, British Columbia for the 2013 Wine Bloggers Conference (conference posts here).

Fortunately, however, my colleagues here in Cali have very kindly and ably assisted me in the endeavor of accruing relevant footage for #VineWatch13 in my absence.

That said, I am late to post the pics, but as noted in the title, better late than never!

So I humbly present to you our beautiful old vine zinfandel to the north:


Ah, just a beatific expression of a healthy canopy in full display! Thank you to my friends and colleagues at Lytton Springs for sharing this lustrous picture!

And for a rather more close-up look at how things are progressing with our cabernet sauvignon vine here at Monte Bello:


Ah, let the sun shine in, let the sun shine in!


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