Here's an update of what's happening in the vineyard!
We pruned the vines and held a pruning demonstration in March. That's the time when we cut back last seasons growth,
|On the left is a freshly pruned shoot
back in March. On the right is a
newly budding shoot in mid April.
As you'll see below each varietal
grows at a slightly different pace.
|The most eager grapes are the
Grenache vines, budding on the left
and a view of rows of Grenache
vines on the right.
|Equally lively are the Syrah grapes seen
here getting a healthy start on the left
and rows of Syrah vines on the right.
|Budding at a more leisurely pace are
the Mourvèdre grapes seen on the
left, that leisurely pace is also
reflected in the more barren rows
of Mourvèdre vines on the right.
