The Vineyard Cycle

January through March

Focus is on Cane Pruning Vines: The art of cutting back the vine, leaving only a few canes to produce the most shoots.

April and May

New vines are planted and established vines begin waking up from a long winter nap!


June through August

Vines grow and grapes ripen. Term to know: Veraison–When berries change color and start to sweeten.

September through November

Time to Harvest. Generally white varietals first; then reds.


Vineyard is dormant and we can enjoy the snow!
