Floreat Vitis

The insubstantial (but far from inconsequential) flowers of my little vine have appeared and the tiny fruits are now set. All being well the grapes will ripen over the next three months barring late frost, drought, rot, hail, wind… Few commercially grown grapevines have a playful kitten and a greedy black Labrador to contend with as mine does; so one-hundred days from now, will there be any fruit left to pick?
Later this month I’ll be travelling to Burgundy to continue my research; from the Côte d’Or with its famously expensive red and white wines down to Mâcon to taste its golden chardonnays… and finding some very special places to stay along the way.
