Our vineyard is pruned now. Several vineyards are actually being irrigated now due to the warm days and the lack of rain. At our last L.A.V.A. meeting there was discussion regarding the tentative impact this will have upon, specifically, vineyards statewide. Larger still, many grape growers also farm other crops. Last years grape harvest locally was abundant. However, if we have a catch up spring rain season, the impact on bud break and fruit set is concerning. If there is no rain at all…..vineyards will be off to an early start.
