Viticulture Corner

Spring is here!

Budbreak, as usual, first occurred at our Nicole's vineyard at the beginning of March and subsequently is wrapping up at Nonny's. Weather has been cooperative. Cover crops are receiving their first mowing. To date we have not had to frost protect.

The Tear Drop demonstration vineyard was recently trained and additional plant material has been ordered to complete the parcel which will contain over a dozen Pinot Noir clones.
