In with the new, and trimming the old. The past couple weeks we’ve gotten to plant some new Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Pinot Noir vines. We’ve also been keeping up with existing vines in the vineyard – trimming or suckering them to help promote the growth where we want it – premium grapes – and tying new growth to their supportive stakes.
Happy Spring! Some photos from our initial work marking and setting up a mountain side vineyard this past first week of spring:
We’re making a second pass through the vineyards, suckering and tucking canes between the trellis wires. We expect to see flowering soon.
