Leaving Gečová

Time and place

On 29th october 2005 we did ploughing of vines. This operation helps vines to stand winter frosts because a point of fissure which is the most sensitive to frosts is covered by soil to protect it. Nice sunny weather welcame us with little frost – temperature was -3°C. We had to warm up by work as soon as possible.


We could leave vineyard at 16:00 because weather was nice and everybody was ready to work (especially Paľo Horný was driving a tractor as an arrow!). We will only pray for mild winter not so severe to vines as last winter was.
