Seeing Red

After the last of the winter rains, we had a beautiful view in one of the vineyards we take care of…. fields of red clover (cover crop)!

 

Weed whacking

The rain has passed, the grass has grown, and it’s time for weed whacking in the vineyard. Let us know if you need help clearing your property.

Some photos from this past week:

Out with the Old

 

This week we removed old vines from a small vineyard block, clearing out the roots and making space for new plants in the spring. #makesitlookeasy

Grafting

With the rootstock settled into its new home on a mountain side, we grafted cabernet franc budwood last week, adding a new block to one of our favorite vineyard sites.  Here are some photos from grafting:

Harvest 2017

Harvest has begun. We picked our first grapes of the harvest, Sonoma County Pinot Noir this past week. We also helped process some fruit in the cellar.  Cheers to a good and safe harvest!
