Berry set in the vineyards

Berry set in the vineyards

As the summer heats up so does the growing process. We are currently experiencing ‘berry set’ in the vineyards. That’s where the grape clusters have been pollinated and are increasing to the size of peas.

It’s also time to top the vines, which consists of removing the shoot tips and stopping the vegetative growth. Concurrently we are removing laterals and leaves and opening up the canopy to allow more light and air to get through to the grapes. It’s a very active and critical time for all of us in the fields and at the winery.
