Living over 500 meters above sea level, things get cold during the winter but the cold winter mornings are just as beautiful as the lush green vines of summer or vibrant coloured autumn afternoons. The frost carpets the ground and the whiteness really brings out the starkness of the naked vines.
Lindsay always enjoys the vast difference in seasons in the Piccadilly Valley and the way they each have their own distinct personalities with each playing a pivotal role in the production of the fruit and in turn the wine.
Unfortunately, such a bold contrast between the frost and the vines is a reminder that there is much pruning to be done before the onset of spring. Luckily, dry gloves, a nice warm beanie and plenty of hot tea help to make this a bearable exercise or even pleasurable if the sun is shining.
