Winemaker Greg La Follette serenades the Pinot in block 5 of Siebert Ranch

With such a multi-talented (some have other terms for him!) guy as Greg around, you never know what is going to happen.  This time it was Greg pulling out his bagpipes to play for the grapes in block 5 of Siebert Ranch.  He and some of his family were over to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary and make some delicious pizza in our outdoor pizza oven (photos from that to come).  We went for a walk in the setting light, and Greg decided that our vines needed some music.

Greg traditionally pipes the first load of fruit each season out of the vineyard and into the crush pad at the winery.  That hasn’t happened yet for us, but this vineyard may have that distinction.  So the grapes got a preview performance.

See if you can guess the name of either of the two tunes Greg plays in this short medley.  Comment with your answer.
