February is the shortest month on the calendar, thank goodness! This month brought snow, rain, wind and cold temperatures. Today it was over 50 degrees. Strange weather when El Nino is in full swing.
We finally made it to the vineyard for some pruning. Things look very good so far. We're almost out of the coldest part of the season. We are expecting rain, which will make the vineyard soggy again. Pruning is vital to a healthy, productive vineyard. We'll just have to slog on and get it done.
Valentine's Weekend was great! Lot's of folks out with their sweeties. Visiting the winery and vineyard is a great cure for cabin fever. The promise of the summer can be seen in the vines. It makes the gray days of winter a little warmer.
If you have any questions about vineyard management, feel free to visit, give us a call or fire off an email. The best way to learn about vines and wines is hands on experience.
Stay warm, spring will be here before you know it!
