Vineyard is looking good!

could be a 20 lb cluster in a few months!

This picture was taken April 1st, 2012, and no fooling around, this may be the biggest cluster yet from our vineyard.  The sangiovese has already reached stage 15 on the Eichorn-Lorenz stages in shoot development–and we haven’t even had Easter yet!

The crop looks very promising this year, but I’m trying hard not to count all the grapes too soon.  All it takes is a short hail storm like last year, when the chardonnay grapes were obliterated.  But for now, we’re having a beautiful spring here in Texas and the grapevines are certainly going crazy.
