Wines I'm Making: The Vines Have Awakened (April 10, 2013)

Warm weather the past few days has coaxed leaves out of the sleeping grape vines. As usual, the Sangiovese vines are ahead of the Cabernet vines. The Sangiovese sprouts are a couple of inches long, the largest leaves as big across. The Cabernet Franc vines are showing a little green. Buds on the Cabernet Sauvignon vines look just about ready to burst. A new year of winemaking begins. 2013 will be our tenth vintage.

Found Art: Battered Air Conditioner (April 10, 2013)

It's not often that you see an old-fashioned air conditioner pushed into a window around here. It's not hot enough at night. I remember these mostly from New York, long ago. This one, in a San Anselmo store window, has been battered about rather thoroughly, but the crushed vanes created a rather interesting pattern, I thought. Found art.
