Another glorious winter’s day in the serra with clear blue skies. Temperatures below freezing at night and up to 10oC in the sunshine during the day. I spend the morning in the adega tasting my way through the 2010 vintage which has now completed malolactic. The wines are all very cold. In spite of having sold off some of my grapes there is still a huge amount of wine, including rather too much Pedra F., the wine that we set aside to sell off in bulk.

I have been having problems with my Achilles tendon for most of the past year which has effectively stopped me from running. Running outdoors is one of my few anti-stress mechanisms and I have felt tethered as a result. Last month my wonderful physiotherapist (David Meech of Bakewell Physiotherapy Clinic http://www.yourphysio.org/) told me that I could at last start running again, if only for 25 -30 minutes at a time, twice a week.
