From super soaker storms in December to a record rainfall of literally zero in January, vintage 2015 is already keeping us on our toes–and budbreak is still at least a month away (hopefully). Watch my […]
Winter pruning is nearly complete in our vineyards. Pruning grapevines is the longest and most laborious task winegrowers endure each year, typically from December through February. This year, we’re already seeing sap ooze from the […]
