The grape is still on…last week!

We decided to wait another week to pick the grapes, because the level of maturation might increase, being the forecast positive for the coming week. I can’t wait, but I know that everything needs its time.
We will probably start Monday or Tuesday, because there will be changes of weather starting from next Wednesday.
As you can see – I took the picture yesterday morning – the grape looks great and healthy.
Right now I am enjoying my 2007, who is giving many satisfaction.
Exactly today, it is on the table of Altesino at the Vitner’s Vineyard in New York.
Guido is taking good care of it. I am sorry I could not go myself, but my presence is needed here really.
Winebow Inc. started to promote the Martino this month and we’ll see what happens. They will order from me the amount of wine that they have been asked for. This is a new thing, and I don’t mind at all. I understand that it is not a top moment for selling, that I have a large competition, but it is good to start somewhere, step by step. I was lucky to find an importer, and which one!
A couple of days ago I had a call from a friend journalist, the Martino had a special mention on the wine guide “Vini Buoni d’Italia”. And this is a really good news for me.
