Carmel Valley Vineyard | July 2013

Our vines were so lush and bountiful that we needed to give them some tlc.
The grapevine canopy consists of the vine’s shoots, leaves and fruit. Care needs to be given so that most of the leaves are exposed to sunlight and air can circulate, keeping everything dry and promoting good fruit ripening.

Hedging takes a little off the top to limit the canopy shading while the hand leaf removal allows more of that Carmel Valley sunshine and coastal breeze to reach the clusters. All of this care leaves behind a blanket of green and clusters eager for the sunshine! Verasion is right around the corner, we will keep you posted!
