Curt in the Dirt - Winery Updates Back to Curt in the Dirt

January, 2017

LDV Winery
Winter is in full swing at LDV. After a very mild fall that had the vines remaining green into November, winter dormancy has taken place and pruning is about to begin in January and carry over into February.

Winter pruning is an important part of vineyard management. We changed our pruning techniques in 2016 to address in-season vineyard work and heavy fruit set.
It resulted in a considerably lower yield this past harvest but will be good for the long-term viability of the vines. Back to full strength this year!

Before the cold weather set in, we went through the entire vineyard and replaced any leaky or damaged irrigation components and cleaned and flushed all lines. It is important to do this before cold weather because you get very wet!
