New Year’s Resolution

This will be my valiant effort to rejuvenate the O’Vineyards blog and hopefully keep it interesting enough to keep you following.
As I mellow with age i find that writing is more satisfying and a bit less strenuous than the field work.
I am posting this on Christmas eve while I sit on our deck sipping a scrumptious claret that I happen to have made myself ( 2006 Reserve ). The temperature is 21 ° (70° F) and considering that Carcassonne is the same latitude as Niagara falls that is kind of amazing.
Christmas day will be our usual feast accompanied by wines from our 2005 vintage and then its back to work on Monday.
We are in the process of setting up a prototype of our new micro winery concept which you can read about on our site. We will be using about 500 SQ FT of our barrel room for the project.
Promise to keep you updated over the coming months!
