Here's What's Happening in the Vineyard...
The vineyard is looking great- we expect one of our largest harvests yet this season.
We are keeping the vineyard healthy with our organic farming methods. We use all natural bio fungicide products in our vineyard. This way we have a safe vineyard environment & wine as well.
We will start to put up our bird netting soon to make sure the grapes are protected as they start to ripen & enter the Véraison stage. We will also continue to focus on helping our grape cluster ripen, by tucking & deleafing. Everything is carefully done by hand to ensure the cluster has the best care.
