The vinestock carries within it the memory of the successive generations that have shaped it at some point in its life. It is, however, facing the times ahead, by bearing future crops and forces us to serve it with the same state of mind. We have therefore pampered the young grapes with just as much devotion, but with a heavier heart than usual.

  • PonCanet has always been good and is not necessarily much better now. The tweaking that has been done was for RP's ratings, and it didn't just involve capital expenditure, but plenty on PR. You're buying the marketeer-speak.  ;-) Read More

Unfortunately (on both fronts) not in the cards for the forseeable future.  ;-( Read More
