Summer is another busy season in the vineyard. It’s a constant challenge to manage
each vine’s growth to ensure it effectively fills the trellising system, in addition to keeping damaging pests and diseases off the vines. We also carefully monitor the fruit every day to make sure it’s ripening properly.
