First Look – Vintage 2015

It’s been pouring this weekend! Everyone has been extremely excited but also with that much rain at one time comes additional problems such as trees falling over the roads and flooding.  I don’t hear too much complaining though.  At this point in the season, it sounds like we have enough water to make it through this year.  The upper Napa River is flowing swiftly and is very full.

We are also less than 2 weeks away from bud break.  The vines are weeping fairly strongly at this point (at least the ones in my back yard are) which is a sure sign that bud break is right around the corner.  It seems to be tracking right along with  the past two years so we might be in for another early harvested year depending on what the weather pattern does this summer.

Spring has definitely sprung in Napa!  The mustard is in full bloom and the Robins are flocking to the area.

My daffodils are coming up and are 1 week out from full bloom there as well.  We still need more water but we are sitting in pretty good shape for the season right now
