Mid-Season Vineyard Report
I am happy to report a larger than normal volume of fruit this year. By all indications the vineyard is on target for a record harvest. The grapes are maturing nicely with larger clusters of grapes. We started our spray program in mid-April and have made seven applications by mid-season. There are no indications of insect damage or fungus throughout the vineyard only four bird’s nests. The Brianna grapes are already nearly two centimeters in size which is greater than mid-season last year. All the Marquette vines are also producing well. I’ve noticed the Petite Pearl like to grow under a canopy of leave foliage to provide shade. The most noticeable standout as I walk the vineyard rows is Frontenac Blanc. As I would say, Mucho Gusto!
