Setting up a blog is not for a perfectionist or the faint of heart. First you have to come up with a name that will be catchy and look good when they reference it in the New York Times. Then you have to make sure that your description will Google properly. I am not good a cute, catchy names.The stress has me immobilized and procrastinating. But, I want to get this website up so I will fall back on words and sayings that make me comfortable. Classic viticulture works, because I really do practice pretty classic viticulture. Not too techy, not too frou-frou, organic if I can, sustainable always, not biodynamic, not flashy. Just hard core, science-based viticulture.
Plus I have a friend that always says, "Hirschfelt, you're a classic" which really says very little, but means plenty.
The title of this first post is from a musical reference. You either get it or you don't. It is in honor of two of my old victiculture buddies that are no longer with us.
Tomorrow I'll write about vineyards. I refuse to write about today since we had frost last night. Hell, we had snow down to 2000 feet in the Foothills. I am going to call tomorrow the official start to the season and hope the damage wasn't widespread.
