The Pacific Ocean of California is VERY different from the same body of water we experience here in Hawaii.  Where our water is warm & inviting, it is real cold & gnarly there.  The winds that come of the ocean there are therefore quite chilling….& it follows the cut in the mountains by the various rivers such as this one to create very different climatic conditions, especially during the respective growing seasons.

Josef Leitz’s vineyards in Rudesheim

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The Rudesheim hillside wraps around a sharp bend in Germany’s Rhein river…..truly breathtaking & picturesque.  I was amazed at the breadth of Leitz’s vineyard holdings & thankful how many of his wines are so amazingly well priced given the sites were they were born.

The slant of the grain & fissures of this vineyard’s silaceous clay soils makes it easier for the roots to make their way downwards in search of nutrients & water.
