April Vineyard Update


April 7th 2019

During the cold, winter months our vines go dormant and retain whatever water and nutrients that are left after harvest within their root stock. As spring arrives with its warm temperatures and sunny afternoons, our vines slowly begin to wake up. As the ground warms, those stored nutrients, water, sugars and hormones will start to flow in the vines. Think about the vines awakening from their dormant phase in the same way as if you were waking up from a long nap: slow and steady.
As the sun starts to shine and warms everything around the vine, the water will begin to rise from the roots up to the spurs left from pruning and bleed out. This process of bleeding re-hydrates the vines and brings nutrients up to the dormant buds, eventually causing them to swell. We expect to see bud swell by the month's end. Another growing season is upon us and we couldn't be happier!
