Vineyards - ready for spring

Before the vine starts growing leaves soon, the old branches get cut off except one or two (depending on the style of the winegrower). The reason for that is to concentrate the "power and juices" of the vine for the grapes once they start growing on these branches.

Ich habe auch schon mal deutsche Weinberge gesehen. Es war in Ahrweiler und in der Nähe. Ist das in deiner Ecke?

Perle de Rosée - Ahrweiler ist ein ganzes Stück nord-westlich von uns und außerdem bekannt für Rotwein (sagt mein Vater). Im Rheingau wird eher Weißwein (vor allem Riesling) angebaut. Aber die Landschaft dürfte ähnlich aussehen.

Bob - Hurray!

Cynthia - that's actually a great idea - I'll keep that in mind. And yes, this is a Riesling vineyard (as most of them are in the Rheingau).
