At last, we have commenced the renovations to our cellar door. We are expanding into the space next to the existing cellar door, currently occupied by a slasher and ride-on mower along with assorted work-benches and other tools.
If all goes according to plan, we should have this completed by Easter. We are keeping it simple--just a good-sized room with a large deck outside overlooking the vineyard (in our current cellar door, this wonderful view can't be appreciated), some simple furniture and the usual Squitchy hospitality.
The recent hot weather caused us some grief in the vineyard but fortunately, it came early and the grapes were not really developed enough to suffer much. This season is proving as confusing as all the recent years--very cold at the beginning which resulted in poor set in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, very hot in January and who knows what's coming in February.....
In any case, we would love to see you at our new cellar door in April.
