News from our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Vineyard

Here’s the report from Ken, at the vineyard:  More light showers and cool weather continue.  The highs are only in the mid-60s F.  In April, we had 4.29 inches of rain bringing our water year to-date to 29.7 inches, which is just about dead-on for normal.  It seems quite wet by comparison to the last three years.  The vines are so happy to have abundant water after these several years of relative scarcity.  While the highs remain in the low 60s, the mildew pressure is very low.  But as soon as the weather warms up we will need to spray or dust again.
