Expectations

The harvest, which is the most enjoyable part of the year of vinedresser, is coming slowly. Berries are growing softer in august . The vegetation this year grows 2 or 3 week earlier than normal. I think I should measure the sugar content to find out what I can expect from grapes. I believe there will be nice predicate wines this year.

Snags

Every grape is valued. It is gold for vinedresser. I walk the vineyard and enjoy every whole grape. Our effort does not come to nothing. We have fought especially against powdery mildew there weren´t any downy mildew there. But the drougth is worst today and the crop will be less compared to last year.

Blues

I am fascinated by blue berries. It is unbelievable that grapes are turning to blue only during the ripening. I am sure it is genetics isn´t it? Man still only try to find out how the nature works.


Frankovka is growing softer
