In The Vineyard
2010 is continuing to look like one of the best vintages ever for Vynecrest. The hot, dry weather is great for the vines. Verasion (when the grapes turn color) has occurred on almost all of the varieties in the vineyard. It looks like the last variety to turn will be Cabernet Franc. This is normal as Cabernet Franc is usually the last variety harvested every year.
Now that we've gone through verasion the grapes will start to get plump and the sugar levels will rise. This means the grapes will not only taste better to us, but to the birds as well. Bird damage is our biggest threat until we harvest the grapes. To combat the bird damage, we put out squawk boxes and constantly patrol the vineyard. The squawk boxes play predatory bird sounds and are strategically placed throughout the vineyard. If anyone wants a couple hundred thousand starlings as pets, come on out and start taking them home!
