March 7 – fuzzy buds.
March 12 – the buds begin to change color.
March 13 – flowers are important in the vineyard.
March 14 – having a weather station in the vineyards means making an investment toward protecting the environment and saving money. We have had this station up and running in the vineyard for three years now and we are really happy with the work it does. We can monitor the data with our phones and we decide whether or not to treat the vineyards using this information.
March 22 – we began working the soil beneath the rows (click here for video).
March 22 – the little leaves are already fully extended and you can see the cluster.
March 28 – we removed dead vines with a mechanical shovel.
