March 31st our Sauvignon blanc had bud break!
Last year these vines had tremendous growth with only 6-8 buds per vine. This year we are leaving around 30 buds to try and control the growth and balance the vines. Our hope is that the shoots will grow to around 4 feet…then stop and ripen the grape clusters, at least that is the goal.
We are on our way to 4 cases of 2013 Turtle Vines Sauvignon Blanc!!!
