Newly planted (almost) small Pinot vyd. Black tubing in place to irrigate at depth first year, then they're on their own.
Picture from the planting front. Rain has stopped for the moment but I for one am already soaked.

Last relic of ancien régime (Era of Big House) being dismantled as winery building is repainted

Lovely meal tonight with new friends Deirdre and Caleb. Dramatic bonfire in the snow.
Morning chores @makerstable. Taking out the cat.
