The Growing Cycle: April

I got to spend a quick but wonderful weekend in Paso for the inaugural CABs of Distinction event put on by the Paso Robles CAB Collective. The events were fabulous and the wines amazing. If you can, I highly recommend attending the consumer event next year!

I was able to take a few pictures of the vineyard to get in this blog post before the end of the month! Spring can be a stressful time in the vineyard. Once the buds break through, it is crucial to keep the new growth safe from the elements. It can still get pretty cold in the early morning hours and the vines are susceptible to frost. Frost can drastically reduce the yield of a crop and in the worst case, destroy an entire crop. Fortunately, because of our location and the fact that we delay pruning for so long at the beginning of the year, we  do not typically experience extensive frost damage.

We are taking frost into consideration when developing the new plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and taking several measures to protect the new vines from frost in the future. A blog post describing those measures will be coming soon!

It is in the 90’s today in Paso Robles, so expect to see much more green and substantial growth in May’s post!
