BUDBURST? Not quite!

These little guys could make a liar out of me.  Budburst is always an exciting time on a vineyard and we wait with baited breath to see the birth of the new season: 2015 vintage.  These new buds are a bit premature; however, they have found shelter in the lee of a trellis post and have beaten their peers to feast on the sunlight.  Budburst is assessed when 50% of the buds have opened and that will occur this year close to the third week in September. It’s moments like this that make all the work well worthwhile.  Truly, a labour of love.tle guys could make a liar out of me.  Budburst is always an exciting time on a vineyard and we wait with baited breath to see the birth of the new season: 2015 vintage.  These new buds are a bit premature; however, they have found shelter in the lee of a trellis post and have beaten their peers to feast on the sunlight.  Budburst is assessed when 50% of the buds have opened and that will occur this year close to the third week in September.
