Lovely little sight in the vineyard this morning. This is the first year that my vines are being farmed organically and it has been wonderful to see a whole ecosystem develop — diversity of weeds, spiders, worms, ladybirds and now birds nesting. Not sure which species made the nest (sparrow perhaps?) but it looks to me like it was abandoned. No eggs or any evidence of having been used. Maybe our little friend didn’t find a mate this year!

Vendages is close. Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet are starting this weekend and I may harvest the whites on Tuesday. We’ll see after I take samples and taste the berries on Friday.

This is the "Callout Section"

And be the first to be offered the premier 2011 vintage
