how are cows and grapes the same?
April 17, 2018
I was talking with a friend last night who used to raise cattle for FFA projects. Over our Texas wines we discussed country life and caring for farm animals and crops. One of the things we realized was that it takes years of practice to correctly evaluate the health of a cow. It's the same with grapes - what should I feed this one? Do I want to keep this shoot or that one? Six foot rows or eight foot? I am envious of the Europeans and others who have been raising grapes on their land for hundreds of years - so much knowledge! And hundreds of years for their food and wine to co-evolve!
