The grapes, the grapes..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is the latter part of July, and the fruit is set…and even a few are starting to change color.
In Chateauneuf-du-Pape in early August they have a festival to celebrate ‘Veraison’ – which is the changing of the color in the ‘raisins’….as you can see it has started. Looks like it will be a good harvest this year!

On another note – – – the rose wine has arrived in Seattle, and should be available next week at local wine shops!!!! So get your orders in now, ’cause when its gone….its gone !!!!
