Vineyard update

The vineyard had some early rains during the spring with a damaging freeze in April.   The temperature dipped to 28 degrees.    It seems typical every year that this low lying area gets hit with freezing tempatures during bud break.  To respond to this issue we decided to add more grapes utilizing our back field which has a higher elevation.   We planted 600 more vines.   (300 Marquette and 300 Chambourcin).   Chambourcin is new to our vineyard and we are excited to see how it does at our location.   


It will take 3 years before we see fruit from this planting.    We expect a yield of about 1 1/2 tons per varietal.
