We are all dying to know what’s new with the vineyards each season and we’eve invited some of our member wineries to clue us in. This Spring, Bill Frick from Frick Winery has graced us with his 2015 vineyard update. So, here’s to fertile vines, luscious grapes, and more wine! And now for Bill’s Wine Road Blog debut:
This is an active time in my vineyards. The vines are now like young teenagers in their rapid growth period.
Viognier is growing suckers that need to be pulled off. Counoise is trying to
set too many clusters that need to be thinned. Syrah is moping. Cinsaut is blooming early and is gorgeous.
All of this needs attention, so the cool mornings find me in the vineyards tending my “children”.
The attention and work will payoff in September when I harvest grapes ripened to perfection.
More in the Vineyard updates to come and more to read from the past!
