We love to watch things grow!

Young Shoots & Leaves 

This is what our vines look like only two weeks after bud break. You can see the shoot tip (Anlagen) which will keep extending the shoots out for several more weeks and can grow, at our site, in warm weather up to half-an-inch per day. You can also observe the tiny clusters which will develop inflorescences and began to flower in mid-May. Our focus on the farm now is to protect these young shoots from mildew and frost as well as remove, by hand, any unwanted shoots that volunteer; a practice we call suckering.
