Spring …

In Avola, Sicily our friends and collaborators are doing so far well. Benno Schwager (the vine master from Switzerland) and Marco Nicolin (operations manager from northern Italy) are in quarantine on Palmeri, as they both travelled to Sicily from the north at the beginning of March. But yes, there are worse places to be in quarantine.
And there is quite a lot going on on Palmeri: The vines are already in the “3 leaf stage”, depending on the variety, a colourful mixture of flowers and grasses is blooming in the rows of vines, the lemons and oranges have been harvested, the lemons have been pressed, the peel dried and then processed into lemon flour and the juice bottled.
