It's official we have bud break in our Spire Pinot Noir Vineyard here in Carneros!

Bud Break! 

On our Carneros Estate Vineyard bud break began in earnest the first week of March, which is a few weeks earlier than the norm. This is the first stage of the annual growth cycle of the vine, using energy stored in its root system, the vines' sap begins to flow and the buds burst with the growth of this year’s shoots. Once the buds have pushed, new leaves will began to unfurl on the newborn shoots and photosynthesis will take over as the engine for the vines.

Here you can see mustard growing up between between the rows of vines in our Carneros, Napa Valley vineyard.
