March Vineyard Update


March 6th 2019

Our vineyard team has been hard at work preparing the vines for the 2019 growing season. They are collecting the canes that grew last season, leaving a 2 bud spur on the vine. The old canes are removed from the vine to stimulate new growth from the leftover spurs.
Spurs are the stub of a cane that may contain between 1 and 3 buds. Spur pruning is a more traditional vine training method that is known to produce outstanding old vine wines.
If you enjoy our wine now, just remember that the best it yet to come! A good rule of thumb when thinking about the vineyard your wine is coming from is:
The older the vine, the better the wine.
The spurs that are left will grow the shoots that will produce this year's fruit. This is actually the beginning of a new growing season!
