I spent the past two nights in Napa and twice I woke up in the early morning hours to the whirr of the wind machines working to keep frost from damaging the vines. Dad’s house is about 1/2 mile from the nearest vineyard so it’s surprising (and a little annoying) to hear the fans, which sound like a hovering helicopter. Of course I didn’t mind too much…anything to save the wine!
