Vineyard Update

Today Seve and the guys began pulling off the grow tubes from our April planting. Vines look pretty good, although most of them had some obvious downy mildew damage down inside the tubes where the spray couldn't reach. Kind of expected that with all the rain we had early on. Still, I'd say 95% of the new plantings have already reached cordon wire height so we're in pretty good shape!

Quentin finished up the Viognier hedging on Friday then took off for vacation for a week. When he gets back it will be time to start over on the Petit Verdot. Vines grow. Good times.
