It’s a concert out there.

July 10, 2011

I visited Old Hill yesterday and took a walkaround with Will. The ranch is just teeming right now with early summer buzz and bloom. You can hear it in the bird calls and smell it on the fig leaves. We talked about the biodiversity of the vineyard and how sustainable  farming works not by eliminating the undesirables but by supporting every species and understanding that their balance contributes to the working whole. It’s great when a grower defends birds, insects, and poison oak so much. With a broad arm swooping North across the valley floor and the mountain in the background, Will explains his attitude, “It’s a concert out there. The more life the better.”
