Good Morning Gentle Readers,
TWC has plenty of space for a vineyard. The rocky, well-drained soil would support such an endeavor. But, even though there might be some tax advantage to be had, he has neither the fervor nor the energy required to convert wild scrub land into thriving grapes. That's a labor of love and takes a bit more than pocket change to get on with.
Here at Casa de las Rocas Grandes, I've got a few fruit trees; Meyer Lemon, Mexican Lime, a couple of Navel Oranges, a Haas Avocado that produces amazing fruit, and a two peach trees that I'm about to cut off the water to. There are also figs and pomegranate and, just for the sake of having it, there is a single Cabernet Sauvignon vine. This is what baby Cabernet Sauvignon grapes look like.
Surprisingly, at least to moi, Cabernet grapes are kind of tasty. They are smallish, dark red, and full of seeds, so eating them is a challenge of sorts. There certainly isn't enough fruit to make wine, and I'm not up for that task, neither.
