What's Happening in The Vineyard

Bud break was early this year due to unseasonably warmer weather early spring. The vines will start to flower in a couple of weeks. During the stages of flowering, pollination and fertilization takes place, which results in grapes.

Despite the lack of rain in May, the vines are doing well and it hasn't affected us so far. If it continues, though, it could affect the resulting harvest in the fall.

We've also been hard at work putting tubes on the vines which help protect them, train them to trellis, and encourage faster growth. We've replaced all the Merlot, Vidal, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that we lost during the harsh winter of 2013, as well as adding more vines to increase our production. It will take at least five years to have a full, quality harvest from the new vines.
