Nearly all the grape vines have been pruned. Farmworkers are just finishing up. While driving this past weekend I saw a few vineyards already in bud break. Sunny warm temperatures and a lack of sufficient rainfall will make this an interesting year for growers and winemakers.

While the grapevines are asleep, farmworkers have been able to do their pruning chores for the upcoming growing season. I took clients to this beautiful winery and its views. What I wouldn’t have given for a chance to peek inside this over-the-top Palmaz Winery and tasting room located in a Napa Valley mountain, just minutes for the hustle-and-bustle of downtown visitors.
