While fall is our busy season, spring still sees so much activity in the vineyard! Our vines have been lying dormant after losing their leaves in the end of fall. During this time our vineyard team went through the rows and pruned all the canes, leaving only the two main cordons.
In April we start looking for the first signs of budbreak, the bursting forth of a small cluster of leaves out of the cordon. These will grow into the upward reaching canes that will eventually grow fruit!
Flowering takes place around May, known as a “perfect flower” as the little green cluster is self-pollinating.
