Down in the dirt with a try hard aaron attenborough

Just thought I’d show you all the quality of the soils in our little Fiasco vineyard.  Our little inspection shows there is a great level of organic matter down there,  rich in invertebrate life, and tasty too.  The soil IS ALIVE!!!

The soil is hugely important for grapevines and the resulting wine.  Vines need/depend on the soil for nourishment as they complete their reproductive-yearly cycle.  Soil quality and composition has the abilty to greatly influence the sensory properties of wine and most imporantly, how the vines ultimately grow.

    AA the video was entertaining and informative. AA your eating dirt scene further impressed your dedication to the task of wine caretaker,(although my immediate reaction caused me to almost choke on my Australian wine 😀 )
