It took a long time this year but now winter has definitely come to gols with ice and snow and everything else. The land is covered by a thick layer of snow now and the vinyards get some rest for a while.

Walking through the vinyards one can now enjoy almost complete tranquility. Nothing moves and apart from some hares and red deer there is not much live to be seen. Until winter pruning starts next year, nothing happens. The vines are in hibernation and provided it’s not getting too cold over the winter (-15 to 20° C) they will start to grow again with strenght in the spring. Here are some impressions of a walk through the snowy winter-landscape. Just scroll down and have a look.
