My brother in law just tore out all his vines.... said the well was getting sketchy and doesn't want to pay to have the rig come out and drill deeper when that won't necessarily produce a reliable volume.

So, my grape cutting days are over.

His acreage abuts the Estrella cab fields between the 46 and the Estrella creek, just east of Paso... not too far from the tree that James Dean wrapped his Porsche around.

It's going to get interesting now that the grape growers have planted more acreage than there is groundwater.

Somewhere along the way they forgot this is a desert.
