Don Baumhefner, master wine maker, shares the view, recently, of an experiment in pinot noir. He told me that, this year, he has personally hand harvested about 3/4 of a ton of grapes as he experiments on behalf of his clients. More recently, the grapes went through the press, again by hand, and are now happily in barrels in his wine cellar. Having tasted all the batches, I heartily approve the prospects! Vino a mano.
