Here begins an involutary blog break for maybe 5 days? I am leaving tomorrow evening to work at Le Chateau Vieux Chevrol in the Lalande Pomerol region near Bordeaux. I work there every year in the fall for the grape harvest, but this year due to the very unusual warm weather, I was asked to work doing the Vendage Vert...or green harvest.
We will cut the excess flower bunches off of the vines letting the grapes that remain get the benefit of the vines energy.
It's been warm so far but I think we will be in the muda as there is rain predicted for Monday and Tuesday.
I'm going to be away from computers and most media! This is going to be the hardest part, I do have a radio and probably will be able to glean information from the French locals who work with me. I
I put up a long piece for you to listen to while I'm gone. It is a live performance by The Mothers of Inventtion in Barcelona, Spain in the 80's. They perform Ravels Bolero....it's 2 parts. I hope I got them sequenced correctly!
