Spring Uncovers Vines

It is no secret that this Winter was a particularly harsh one for all across the United States. Many people are altering their normal pruning methods and taking a more “wait and see” attitude as they see how the subzero temperatures effected our vines.
Meanwhile in our vineyards we saw some damage from Voles and/or Gophers while in the new vineyard we took off the grow tubes and lightly pruned the vines. See pics below.
