it’s an ill wind…


Yesterday, late afternoon, and up and down the Côtes was a bit of a storm. No worries about hail, and the rain that fell wasn’t really damaging as the flowers haven’t yet opened – but!

There were heavy gusts of wind on the more exposed slopes, such that the long shoots that haven’t yet been tied down – say 1 metre in length – were often ripped straight from the vines and thrown to the floor. That will sicken those who had been hoping for better yields…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
