6:30 Flyby

Spraying fungicides is a necessary evil in all wine regions of the world. Organic or conventional, every winegrower sprays throughout the year. Variances in what, when and how play a huge role on the results in your glass.

My lads run to the bathroom window at 6:30 in the morning to greet the Pilot as he man-handles his machine across the vineyards behind our house.

I had the pleasure of flying with a young pilot a few years ago. As he rotated us through every axis known to flight, he posed questions like, ‘So how did you end up here? Where did you meet your wife?’ He was a very likeable character with a quick wit and a cheeky grin which complimented his style of flying.
