Spring Bud Break
Well it’s that time of year again. We have one eye on the vineyard and the other on the Weather Channel. As the buds burst we hope for non-freezing nights.

The Arizona wine industry is just now getting large enough to attract new local vendors and technical expertise. Of note, Vern Johnson a representative for Fertizona, has stepped up to provide assistance to wineries statewide.

He specializes in vineyard maintenance and has worked with me to develop a customized plant nutrient program specifically tailored to our land and vineyard goals.
This is a huge development for us. We just completed our pre-bud break procedures that should have the vines jumping!

We are not planting any new acreage this year but we will be planting about 900 vines to fill in the skips resulting from a couple of tough winters. This winter was about average and the vines that are established are looking good.
