Just checking in: Heard some grape news from my Oregon Pinot Noir farmer.. vines are looking healthy- they've had a bunch of rain.. sometimes almost too much- he did say there are running the tractors all the time to manage the canopy! We'll have a good idea of grape cluster size and crop load very soon. Still working on the contract with my farmer for 2013 and beyond!! Yeah we plan that far out- really excited to lock down both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris for the 2013 harvest.
Living here in Napa I'm able to check out the crops all the time- I'll have a full report on Monday about the 2012 Napa Valley Syrah- expect a very small production (because of the quantities we are buying) but with the weather we've had here... amazing fruit will come out of this established vineyard on the valley floor!
Happy National Lasagna Day (July 29th- I'm cooking a roasted eggplant and basil)... what kind you cook?
Very interesting -- thanks for sharing, and looking forward to hearing more about the Syrah harvest!
PS. Butternut is a particular favorite. :)
Wow, sounds exciting! The Syrah sounds wonderful! Nice to hear that someone is having wonderful weather, too... here in MO, it is HOT and DRY.
Too bad I totally missed National Lasagna Day... I probably would have gone with grilled eggplant, fresh mozz, and basil, though.
Thanks for the update William. Best of luck securing the contract for the Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris!
I may need this eggplant recipe. We just paired your Riesling with some grilled eggplant, spicy Italian sausage and Mozzarella. Delish!
