▪ Website: New recipes
Last weekend we bottled the 2012 Frambelle and had our executive chef
Andrew cater for the work party. It was a wonderful meal in lovely
weather at the picnic table in the vineyard. The menu was superb for a
summertime wine picnic. The recipes are posted on the website: Grilled
Basil Chicken & Strawberry Salad, Bread & Htipiti (Greek Feta
& Pepper Spread), Orange Hazelnut Chocolate Balls.
▪ Neighbor property for sale
wanted to live next to a vineyard? Here's your chance! The neighbor
property to the SW is up for sale. It has a south-facing slope and was
in farming until the 1970's. It's immediately next to the Morales
Public Farmland property, which means there will never be further
development there, including part of the PV leased vineyard. Although
it is close to SR-305, it is in a hollow below the highway level, so
does not get that much traffic noise.
▪ Vineyard: Leaf pulling We're significantly behind in leaf pulling, so I'd love some help. If you're interested
in learning about grape growing, this is another important vineyard task you should learn about - please consider
joining our helpers
email list. This helps get the sprays and sunshine fully into the fruit thus preventing Powdery Mildew and Botrytis mold.
▪ Nominate your fave wine outlet
planning to spend the next month trying for new outlets on the
peninsula to the south (of Poulsbo), and on the mainland (most anywhere
in western WA). If you have a favorite local wine shop, please reply to
this email and let me know. I'm also interested in restaurants, but
please consider primarily places that focus on locally-produced-food.
