It was Ute’s last day last Thursday and we gatecrashed Brian & Monica’s grape harvest We were so pleased that we did. Ute worked and worked thoroughly enjoying herself. Friends from all over the valley voluntarily came and worked so hard to finish the harvest in a few hours.
Brian and Monica sent this email afterwards :
Thank you so much for all your hard work on Thursday. It was a longer day than planned but the crop was HUGE. There were lots of fantastic bunches. All in all approx 2200 kilos/litres are in the 3 tanks, which are full.
We hope you’ve all recovered; no aching backs, no aching legs etc etc.
So a big thank you for 7-8 hours of cutting, carrying, grading, de-stemming & catering, to complete the harvest of the whole vineyard, some 1100 vines.
You will all receive the 2012 vintage when its ready and the 2013 in a couple of years.
With many thanks again . . .
Monica & Brian
PS: We do not have email addresses for Alex, Lola, Ute or Juan Manuel so please forward this email to them.
As they say. All good things must come to an end. So it was when I waved my last goodbye to Ute at Malaga airport.
So that was the last I saw of them as they disappeared through security into the departure lounge
