The Vineyard has been pruned mid February, the weeds cut, last years shoots shredded. Waiting for bud break of 2022. It has been a very dry & warm February & March.
Lucky for us, we harvested as much of the water we can from the December rain pour we had. We used our emptied wine tanks & wine bins to collect the water. As time passed, we had to use some of the wine to water the plants & to let go of it to the vineyard. We anticipate a dry year yet again. the experts are predicting the difficulty growers will face for the 2022 vintage.
At Captain Vineyards, many of the activities are done by a member of our family & a team of help to support the amount of work needed to keep the vineyard healthy & beautiful.
