A 30 meter double zepp sloper antenna hangs above the vineyard where we grow wine grapes and also make our own wine each Fall. Normal CW operations are typically at 18-22 wpm, on the 40 to 12 meter bands, at 5 or 100 watts, powered from batteries, solar panels, a gas generator or the power grid.
The local climate is nearly perfect for our Martini-Olmo 66 Chardonnay grafted to 3309 Courderc root stock. Our first vintage year was 2004 and we have been producing wine ever since. The wine is fermented with a Pasteur Champagne yeast and then put on light toasted oak before being cooled to 5C [42F] during the Winter, precipitating out tartaric acid crystals. After transferring to bottles the following year, the remaining fruit sugars support a second natural fermentation in the bottle to add abit of CO2 gas. So far, 2007 has been our best vintage year producing a balanced low alcohol (11.5%) wine.
