Notes from a cantina deep in the heart of Umbria.
Its been a long hot summer in Italy, followed by an equally warm and dry Autumn. The vineyard is only now starting to look like it is getting ready for its winter slumber. All the leaves are yellow …
The beautiful bar at the Pig at Combe. Please notice the wine. Nothing like a glass of crisp, minerally D'oro.D'oro at the Pig at Combe
Like the UK, the weather in Italy has been extremely hot. It looks and feels more like August. We could do with some rain but no storms please. We missed out on this passing shower.
The vines are looking strong in spite of the late frosts and now extremely hot weather. We are heading in the right direction and look at that slope!
The vineyard is recovering well from the earlier frost and the grapes are developing well. Our yield will be lower than last year but fingers crossed things are heading in the right direction.
