Chateau Flateau

Wine-making season is fast approaching; good neighbour Amir from Canada,Raanana and [now] Tsfat came over to pick up some cups he ordered,bringing a bunch of his vine's grapes and questions. I had just picked some bunches from our vine: hand-pressed,they produced enough juice for an initial reading with the hygrometer - gravity is 1074 [allowing for temperature],a bit low yet,with 18% sugar by weight and potential alcohol 10%,all of which means that the grapes need another week or so.
