April in the Vineyard
April 17, 2018
April in the vineyard. Rapid shoot growth and grape bloom. Here is where I wish I could post a scratch-and-sniff feature for you all. The grape blossoms are teeny tiny (as our horticultural agent says - "unremarkable"). But they make up for their underwhelming appearance with the most amazing aroma. The blossoms smell like the absolute very best wine I could make from the grapes- minus the alcohol. Each grape variety has a slightly different aroma. Walking down the rows at bloom time is my favorite place on Earth.
