Version 2

I have been in Barolo quite a few times, but I have never been there for the harvest. But finally, this year, I got to experience it. It really is a very interesting moment. All the hard work that has been done in the vineyard is now on it’s way to become wine. Most of the work is done. Now we just wait and see. These grapes will be wine in 2 to 5 years.
