Friday Photo: Winery Work is Never Done

Grape vines are still dormant in the Napa Valley, but work continues none the less at Kitchak Cellars.  Vines need to be pruned, not too early, not too late and wine barrels need to be “racked.” Today we are racking, a cyclic procedure of removing sediment that has accumulated during the aging process as the wine matures.  It’s a wet and messy job, but made a little more pleasant by the mild temperatures we are expecting this afternoon. I’ve decided to post a more idealistic photo of the winery for you today. Notice the how the vines look so skeletal this time of year.
