Ready or not

Timing is everything, that's why we made a jump start in January to prune a bit early all 11000 vines ourselves.  Normally we have a crew come in late Jan/ early Feb. and prune the whole 12 acres in 2-3 days.  While reviewing the pruned vines in past years, we always noticed a pattern.  Unfortunately, it was a pattern that showed at least one or two of the pruning crew had absolutely no idea what they were doing!  So we had to work with what they left us; often re-pruning many of the vines.

Sendai; awakened by the moon

Arrived in Sendai, Japan for the start of ViniJapon last night.  Just one year after the earthquake and tsunami, there is little evidence of the damage within this newly renovated city.  The people are gracious and there is an exuberance in the air.  At the "Mangetsu Bar" (full moon bar) event, a line-up of organic, biodynamic and so called natural wines were lined up for us to experience the wide array of winemaking techniques; some a little more outrageous than the others.  But the atmosphere was teaming with energy.  Could be due to the full moon, as I felt the hair on the back of my neck rise up to the occasion.  Although snow slowly filled the sky, I felt this insatiable desire to raise my glass and howl to the lonely man in the moon.
