New Year - New Projects... Making our own wine...

Time for a little update on what's going on in our lives... 2011 will be very special for us as we are about to grow in a family member (little boy expected any time now), so we've decided this would be the perfect year to start making our own wine!!!
Together with Dante and Helena of Colombaia, Pierre has started pruning the shared vineyard in the red soils of Pievescola. The plot is only about an acre, but the vines are around 30-40 yrs old and should give some very good fruits.
The future wine is going to be made according to organic standars, so everything will be hand-made in the vineyard.
And since I'm currently not in the state to help actively I thought it would be fun to film the others working and share how to prune a vine with you!
