The baby vines are here! We started a big replanting project back in February, and we’re very excited to see the beginning of our new vineyards.
The grapes pictured are Chardonnay, but we are also replanting Pinot Noir and Syrah – almost 400 acres altogether. The vines won’t start producing fruit for about three years, and it will take another couple of years before the vines are mature enough to create fruit that’s ready to go into our wines.
So why replant? Because just like anything else – the vines slow down with age. Also, replanting these vineyards gives us the opportunity to improve row direction, vine spacing, rootstocks and clone selections in our never-ending quest for the best possible quality.
We can’t wait to taste the results!
