Farming is truly a year round endeavor. From preparing fields
for planting and pruning in the winter, planting in the spring,
tending the fields in the summer and harvesting the crop in the
fall, the cycle continues from year to year. Each year is the
same yet different from the last. Our vines are impacted by the
weather, variations of temperature and rain, both duration and
timing. Rain in the winter, spring sunshine, the heat of summer,
rain in the fall, it all effects our fruit, how it develops and
ultimately tastes. Too much rain early in the fall may impact
our harvest. Rain in the spring may impact fruit set. Heat too
early in spring may accelerate bud break.
We are in partnership with nature working to produce the finest
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes possible. It is our job to be responsive
and alert, to tend our vines like protective parents, allowing
them to mature to their fullest potential.
So, here is just a little bit of our year... Begin
