» Vintage Watch VIII
By Gregory Dal Piaz
Summer 2013 is going out with a bang on mainland Greece. That is just an amazing forecast with probably the longest stretch of high temperature we're likely to see this week.

And in Israel we are still in the dog days of summer. Hot humid days and cool nights. Rain at this time of year is never a concern, though who knows what changes global warming has in store for us.
The harvest is well underway and the vintners I know are pleased. A week and a half ago I participated in a Merlot harvest in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem. 25 brix, pH ~3.3, gorgeous color, and wonderful flavors.

I will be sure to include Israel in next year's Vintage Watch. Thanks for sharing with us!
