Ushering in the Quiet Season

While we still have a few cultural and wine-related events (and of course the Christmas Market on November 23rd) to go until it gets really quiet (the hotel closes in January and February for the winter) it is already getting seasonally quiet here at the castle.

Work in the vineyards is resting while the 2014 wines are in their tanks, waiting to be bottled in spring. The winery has grown to about five acres of vineyards (up from about 3 acres in 2012) so there is more work to be done. We will start pruning the vines in December this year, preparing them for the 2015 vintage.
