Midwinter Activities

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Sunday February 05, 2012   -   By Larry

This is the time of year when all the leaves are brown and the sky is gray, but the work is never done even on such a winter's day.  We are pruning, making cuttings for replanting some of our oldest vines and making plans for the upcoming growing...

Fall Update

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Wednesday October 05, 2011   -   By Larry

It was a great harvest this year.  It wasn't our best, but better than last year.  The hot weather really concentrated the sugars, so it should be a good vintage.  The yeast is almost done doing it's magic to convert sugar to alcohol.   ...

May Showers

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Saturday May 21, 2011   -   By Larry

It's been a rather rainy and cool May.  The vines are looking good, but we've had to use fungicide rather early in the year.  We fertilized and are spraying for phylloxera as well.  It's all just general maintenance to ensure a healthy vineyard...

Lots of pruning going on in the vineyard.  The Catawba had a lot of frost damage from 2008 to clean up.  We are definitely going to fertilize, boron and love these guys back to good health.  They should have a much better harvest if the weather...

Pruning Season

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Sunday February 20, 2011   -   By Larry

Old Man Winter is here and he seems to be staying for a spell.  The snow blanketing the vineyard is beautiful. We're testing out our newly created mechanical pruner.  The first trial looks great.  This will really help us manage the vineyard...

December

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Friday December 10, 2010   -   By Larry

I have been a bit negligent in my blogging.  It's been a very busy late fall and early winter.  The new bottles from A Glass Container are wonderful!  We love them.  I am pondering getting some of their jars for home canning.  Jelly...
