Vineyard Report

We had our 1st day of work in the vineyard on Jan.12th. All our seasonal and regular staff were eager to return to work after the holidays.

This year’s weather has been especially mild allowing us to get our pruning and field work done rapidly. We did get more winter moisture then last year. Nov.1, 2013 to Feb 28, 2014 we accumulated about 1 inch of moisture compared to more than 3 inches for the same period this winter.

We are probably about a week ahead of last year in our pruning. We should start taping and tying down the cordons about the 10th of March.

If the weather continues we are looking for an early bud break and praying for a repeat of last year’s quality.
