Pruning season has begun at the vineyard, as well as preparation for planting. We're feeling grumpy because the weather has been beautiful during the weeks lately, while we are busy at our day jobs. Then the weekend comes and it is cold and windy. It's not fun to think about going outside today, so instead we are going to bottle.

We bottled Seyval and Rose last weekend, and we will bottle Norton and Dodging Tornados today. That part is exciting, because that means we will have more wine to sell in a few weeks. And for today it means we will be out of the wind and in the cellar, which will feel balmy by comparison even though it's only about 48 degrees down there.
