On Friday night, I realized that I had a male bobolink trying to get my attention in the vineyard. I think that one of his brood must have been close by. Saturday morning, I believe I saw a female with a young bird, but they headed down into the valley. My naturalist neighbour took a very nice picture of the male, down in the valley, as attached.The valley is good habitat as shown in the website photos. When last seen, the bobolink was close to the winery.
Our premium red blend -Aenigma is back. We thought that this would be a fall release, but the wine is soft in the mouth and drinking well now. Some tasters have thought that the Regent-Cabernet Sauvignon blend was peppery. It would be a great accompaniment to BBQ beef. Earlier we released the Pinot Gris and Riesling 2012 vintages.
Canada Day is Monday. I’m putting up my flag in the next 20 minutes and invite all of you to enjoy the parade in Port Dover (which includes boats), and a glass of Canadian wine. Check out the Ontario South Coast Wineries.
