Craig Stapleton came to see us yesterday. We talked and tasted our wines. Craig liked very much Chardonnay and Blanc de Pinot Noir. It was great to see him again. This morning we have loaded another two pallets of our Pinot Noir for London. We are very pleased that the Charles´s team of Lea and Sandeman Co. has trusted us again.
So, see you in London, April 19
Lea and Sandeman has ordered another wine. We are pleased that London likes our wines and that whole shipment was sold out within two month. At the same time, it is an obligation for us to keep working and improving. So, we are going to prepare our next shipment of Pinot noirs for London, UK.
I WISH THERE WOULD BE MORE WINE WITHOUT SO2 SOLD ON THE CZECH REPUBLIC MARKET. THEREFORE, TRY OUR VINTAGE 2015, IT HAS NO SO2, YET.
PLEASE, CALL JIRKA DUFEK OR TOMAS SPRINGER.
We wish all you especially strong health, happiness and a lot of good wine in the year 2016. What are we facing? Work on vintage 2015, it keeps looking promising. We plan to plant Chardonnay on the vineyard of Čtvrtě. We have to pay a special attention to the young plants. We´ll keep working in ORGANIC way. I think you can fully understand the meaning of the word "ORGANIC" after at least one year of applying it. We have been applying ORGANIC for ten years. The best on it is that we all have enjoy it more and more.
...And I would say that so have you. So, cheers!
See Ben listening to how Pinot noir 2015, clone 777 is working.
Friends, there was a time when I thought that the global warming would be good for winery. Grapes will mature regularly and even better. I don´t think so anymore, and for some time. The extreme weather pretty much ruins and devastates our work... Michal Janecek has come to see us today and he said: "I have been to Alaska, and the rivers are rather dry and algae have proliferated over there. Some 4 years ago, the clean sea in Finland is clogged with algae today"....
We suffer the shortage of ground water. The air is getting worse and worse, especially in autumn and winter. Let´s think about it carefully. I will plant trees and vines and look after them always in the pure ORGANIC way, despite of that deer will bite both our leaves and grapes "preferably". The deer don´t like chemicals, and we shouldn´t as well! I would like to build a pond on our property under the Terasy plot. We need more clean air, quality water and a good wine from time to time, so that we would be happier. Well, that´s it......Jaroslav Springer
