From The Vineyard: June
Happy Summer! We’ve had a busy spring here at Alexeli. The vineyard is looking beautiful as we’ve already suckered the vines and thinned shoots out. Next we’ll organize the fruiting shoots so that they are evenly spaced out to create a roomy environment for the fruit to grow.
The vines have bloomed and most of the fruit has set, meaning that we have grapes (granted they are the size of a pin head). With this timing we are looking at a late September harvest, which may mean we dodged the grape eating migrating birds by a couple of weeks once again! Now we simply hope for a cool and even summer with no extreme spikes in heat and warm nights to ward off heavy dew.
