Wine Grapes - Spring Growth - 3rd year

Things are growing nicely in the vineyard despite our cold and wet weather. Here is the Madeleine Angevine plants this morning.

Struggling Pinot noir, Pinot blanc, and newly planted Siegerrebe and Pinot gris in South vineyard.

Enjoyed meeting Becky and very much enjoyed their 2009 Roussanne sourced from a vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA.
