It's organic so it's got to be good for you - 28 Jun 17

Domain Road Vineyard - It's organic so it's got to be good for you - <p></p>

I've been in Blenheim for a few days at the Organic and Biodynamic Conferance. Our son Steven was there so it's was good to catch up with him as well. 

 

We also had a guest appearance from Fern, a native falcon. We occasionally have one flying around our vineyards along with hawks, which are a larger species. Fern is based at the Marlborough Conservation Falcon Trust premises here where the aim is to breed and re home falcons to different parts of the country.

While I was listening and talking about organics the vineyard team were practicing it on a rather cold morning, putting out some compost.

Winter Solstice (Shortest day) - Moody changing clouds hover over Cromwell, the fog slowly lifting as the day lightens and the sun emerges from behind the scenes.

  

Pruning under way at the Defiance Vineyard, posts at the end of the rows being used for coat racks as the day warms up.
