It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over
Remember last week's show about bad weather and nervous winemakers? Our guest Sam Tannahill, the Director of Viticulture and Winemaking at A to Z Wineworks, gave us an extended baseball metaphor to explain the state of the vines: it was the bottom of the ninth, he said, and even though his team was down, you never know what might happen.
Sam emailed us today — after a few beautiful, warm October days — with this triumphant update:
By the way we have certainly turned the corner and now we’re at the bottom of the 9th, score is tied and bases loaded. This one may turn out to be epic... in a good way!
Now all the grapes need, I guess, is gimpy Kirk Gibson.
