Hi All

Just a quick note:

Well – Winter has REALLY arrived here in the South of France. This started just this morning (it had been forecast) and we’ve got about 2″ so far – with maybe a total of 4-6″ by the time its done today/tonight. We will have to delay the winter pruning for a couple of days, but this is a fleeting thing (rain and then sun to return by Friday).

But – for those of you who were wondering…YES it does snow here! And because it happens so infrequently, the drivers here are no better than in Seattle….it took me 2 hours to get back from the ‘mall’ at noon. But it is really pretty.

Next up after pruning will be bottling the Cotes-du-Rhone red and rose – in about three weeks. More from me again when we’re done.

Be well out there.
