Sometimes time seems to move faster than at others. The onset of spring is certainly one of those times. We visited the vineyard last week and we found a tightly wound spring (yea yea). The vines stood yet un pruned and seemingly dead in their lack of green. Shoots that bore last year’s fruit were naked and spent.
In contrast the hills of Berryessa Gap were brilliant green, full of promise and the sun was strong and warm. As we walked and talked about pruning and shoot number we could feel that at any moment the 2011 vines would be here.
Kaboom presto changeo! Wish us luck.
