Good morning and happy Spring Equinox! We have many reasons to be grateful today including the official advent of the new growing season:
Max has totally revamped and simplified the farm web site to include information on Mesa Winds Winery, in addition to the farm. AND she restored my blog so I again have a forum to keep you updated — and to express my sometimes whacko ideas.
Information and sign-up for our 2013 CSA is now up on the web site.
Despite the coming of Spring, the weather forecast predicts several days of rain, snow, and cool weather. This expectation, together with several other recent precip events, is reassuring for a break from the drought that lingered well into the winter.
With these inclement days, we have been working in the winery. Tuesday we racked the 2012 rose in preparation for bottling later this week. Soon to receive our attention will be the 2012 Pinot Gris. We have been privately tasting our 2011 Pinot Meunier which is scheduled for release by Mothers Day. We’re very pleased and hope you will be, too — worth waiting for!
We are still looking for homes for four of Snowy’s delightful pups, now 10 weeks old. Details and pics are on the web site. We are very pleased that the six who have been adopted found jobs as livestock guardian dogs; the role for which they are bred.
