We want to harvest the grapes but . . . .

it keeps raining.

Up until Saturday, the weather here was hot (in the 80’s) and dry.  All plans were to start the harvest of the other grapes that had not already been picked (i.e. Cabernet & Merlot for our Super Tuscan “Gli Sposi” ) Monday 19 September but on Sunday night the rains came and then the cold.  Today at 8 in the morning it was 54°F!!!  And it rained again last night.  So now we plan on starting tomorrow (Wednesday). 

They do say the weather will get warmer by tomorrow, up to about 80 again and I am sure those who are picking will be very happy if it does.

Will post pictures as soon as it starts.
