Sorting and pigeage...

We began processing 2009 Hocus Pocus this weekend. Picked at 4am on saturday morning and began sorting at 9. It took me, Peter and our friend Susan from Venokado 6 1/2 hours to do 2 1/2 tons. It was a very. very slow process. We lost the sorting table this year, but who cares? What do we need that for when we can just do it the old fashioned way, pull out of the bin cluster by cluster and place on the destemming machine. Fruit looked great! Even though I don't look so good. I look downright possessed. 

And then today I did some pigeage. Finally found a way to use those rain boots I bought 2 years ago. I love this photo. Banana Republic meets the Wine Ghetto.
