A whole year

Wow! it's been a whole year since our last blog thanks to many great customers from referrals, Google and TripAdvisor. 2016 was incredibly busy, it's a good problem to have so much work that we don't have time to do blog posts to generate more business, however we still we still feel bad about keeping family and friends out of the loop of what we've been up to. So here's a quick update on the Nebbiolo Vineyard we planted last year.
In the second year the vines have grown enough to need support wires with lots and lots of help from Mariagrazia and Valter from Icardi. Old cool Poles, training wires and metal stakes for each vine were installed last weekend.
As the wax from the grafting at the nursery wears away the vines are growing fast therefor they need to be tied to the stakes for this year and next then they will be tall enough to be tied to the suport wires

With easter being late this year the weather was sunny and warm, no rain for once.
