June Vineyard Update

The vineyard is looking great as between rows was tilled up and new grass planted.  This is done every year with an annual grass planted.  The grass helps with erosion management. 

The vineyard staff goes through and takes off any vine shoots growing from the main vine.  That's 9500 times bending over to pull these shoots off the vine.  My back hurts just thinking about it.

The clusters have started to form on the vines.  It's hard to believe these little guys will grow up to one day be a tasty bottle of wine, but it's true.  Approximately 10-12 of these clusters can produce one bottle of wine.
