July Vineyard Update


July 11th 2019

The fruit has set and the shoots are growing! The vine's canopy is filling out and the tiny berries are beginning to resemble the mature grapes we anxiously await to harvest. A grape vine will produce between 100-150 shoots per vine. We want to maintain about 40 of the best shoots to crop for this season. The remainder of the shoots are hand-trimmed to allow sunlight to ripen the better shoots.
The rain so far this season has been a definite challenge- much like last season. Due tot his, yields are slightly down from our average. While this is not ideal- it is not time to worry yet! If the rest of the growing season goes well, the vines will be able to ripen the smaller yield of grapes to a higher quality. This means better fruit, which means better wine.
Keep your fingers crossed for sunny and dry weather!
