Currents from the Vineyard
JUNE 2014
Our new patio has been completed and we hope you all enjoy the new addition! This area is much more functional than the beautiful lawn that Paul, Jon and I removed last month. We are saving 3,000 gallons of water per month — doing our best to conserve water!┬áThis area was also designed for you, our Wine Club Members. It’s spacious, open and offers a close view of the Pinot Noir vineyard. You have easy access to walk into the vineyard and enjoy its beauty.

Our vineyard is thriving this time of the year. Our partner, Jon, has been tending to the vines full-time. His duties include thinning the tender shoots and leaves. This allows the organic sprays to penetrate the canopy, leaving air and sunlight to help the vineyard and produce top quality grapes.┬áThis time of year we spray with dried seaweed and flower oil. These applications feed and nourish the vines. The Pinot Noir clusters have “set” and look beautiful!

We look forward to seeing you soon at the new patio!
