Dear wine lovers,
"Merci" might be an easy way but it is the right word to thank all of you who came to visit us during our February US events. Kristi and I have been so touched by your kindness and I have been so proud to pour our wines for the first time.
We are back to our dear vines and wines which have evolved with warm (not to say hot) weather. Vine is in tears, which means I don't have much time to finish pruning and our "living" wines are also evolving. Babies ladybugs are here (can you find it here ?) and just before we left, we have put some green compost in our old vines. As for the wines, the Dentelle cuvée will be bottled next week, on a fruit day and raising moon which are the best conditions on the lunar calendar to bottle wine.
And, by the way and even if we know well how relative this is, I wanted to tell you that our Dentelle just got a "silver" reward at the National Agricultural fair of Paris.
Here are the photos and an article of our tour. We will be back in April in NYC and surely at more places in the near future.

PS : As I am just about to send this post, I just receive an email from Jennifer in OR with who I have been emailing. Her post on Rouge-Bleu is so revealing and so true that I can't help mentioning it to you here. "Merci" Jennifer
