A 30 meter double zepp antenna hangs above our small vineyard where we grow wine grapes and also make our own wine each Fall. Normal CW operations are typically at 19-23 wpm, on the 40 to 12 meter bands, at 5 or 100 watts, powered from batteries, solar panels, a gas generator or the area power grid.
The local climate is nearly perfect for our Martini-Olmo 66 Chardonnay grafted to 3309 Courderc root stock. 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 a bit of carbon dioxide gas. So far, 2007 has been our best vintage year producing a balanced low alcohol (11%) wine.
