The vines in our vineyards are in bloom. Yes, grapes have blossoms too. Very small ones, though, so you really have to get up close and personal to truly appreciate them. They depend on wind for fertilization and by some wonderful miracle of nature it works every year.
We are now busy in our vineyards tackling the growth of vines and leaves by packing everything neatly and lightly into the wire frames so the vines can grow strong and straight up while the grapes grow and have air to breathe and to stay dry and comfy.
We had our annual Castle Wine Festival an June 4th, a Thursday and Catholic (so also Bavarian) holiday. That was a lot of fun and many friends of the castle and the winery came to visit.
Today there is a big wedding party in the biggest of our banqueting halls. Smack dab back in the busiest season of the year!
