Grapey goodness.

Yum! The St. Helena Clone 7 looked and tasted good.
Everything went smoothly this morning; fruit arrived in a timely manner, sorting and destemming went according to plan, clean-up was quick and painless...should make for a good glass of wine three years from now. Cheers!

Hi VG. May I ask a general question please? Why does Chardonnay give me an ummediate but temporary rash on my neck and chest?

Affer: Never say never.

Monkey: Those girls love their grapes.

WH: Well, first I'd tell you to just stop drinking Chard!!!
Most people think allergies/headaches etc. are caused by sulfites in wines, and indeed white wines have more sulfites than reds (most assume this is the other way round.) If you had an allergy to sulphur, then you wouldn't be able to eat most dried fruits. Can you?
Have you ever heard of Asian Flush?
