Vineyard and winery update

Events

»» Vineyard and winery update

Pruning is completed. Even though warmer weather pushed buds earlier, we pruned our usual time - in early March. A little extra care had to be taken to keep from knocking off some good buds, but since the vines were "bleeding" we avoided the need to spray protectant on the cut ends.

Now more caution being taken as we move wire and tie the cordons down. Busy repairing wire, posts, replacing drippers, mulching the prunings in place in the vine rows etc.
