Cold winter days in the Fico vineyard

Throughout January we have experienced extremely low temperatures, the like of which we haven’t seen for many years, one morning we registered -7°C in the vineyard. This has meant that up until mid morning the ground is covered in frost, which, lays like fine embroidery on the plant shoots growing from the rich underlying manure. 

The colours of the trunks and branches of the vine, particularly vivid at this time, make a striking contrast with the cold sharp greys of the frozen early morning dew.
