The grapes are Flowering in the BookCliff Vineyards

Last Thursday we visited the vineyards to see the progress the grapes are making. Due to the recent wave of hot weather the grapes are growing like weeks. Some of the varieties are flowering at the moment. One of them is the Merlot. As you walk down the rows you can smell the sweet scent. We keep our fingers crossed that it does not rain and that we won't have high winds while the grapes flower and set fruit. If everything goes according to schedule, we can expect ripe fruit in the middle of September.
