Flowers in the wine

Wineflowers in Verzy at midsummer.

Two weeks of heatwawe has accelerated the wine tremendously, and in the middle of last week we saw the first flowers of the Chardonnay-grape this year.

Now the the rule of thumb says that we will harvest in 100 days. Which means well into october. We'll see.

In this house we still remember 20003 where the grapeharvest was almost finished, when we came back after three weeks of holiday in Denmark. The extremely warm weather of August that year speeded up the maturation of the grapes so fast, that we only made it back on the last day of the harvestdays.
