Frost bites

The small hillside vineyards of old vines at Domaine Jones have been untouched so far by the frosts we have had on 3 consecutive nights in Tuchan (19th - 21st April).

But Mother Nature can be rather challenging sometimes and a couple of Jean Marc's vineyards have not been so lucky.

The worst hit vineyard which was in the valley bottom will not recover for this vintage.
