Abbott Claim Vineyard Update

Visual of height development from 2011, 2012, and 2013 created by Mark Gould.

This year we have seen a significant difference in the amount of shoot growth in our Pinot noir vineyards. According to Ken Wright and vineyard manager Mark Gould, this is the most shoot growth they have seen this early in the growing season ever! Mark & Ken have kept close records on what happens in the vineyards from year to year. According to their records for Abbott Claim, on May 18th, 2011 total height was 4 inches, on May 18th, 2012 the total height was 12 inches, but this year on May 18th the shoots measured 22.5 inches! This early development has been a product of the incredible weather we have had this spring, and early bud break.  Ken is predicting that harvest could happen as early as mid-September this year. We are all very excited to see what the rest of this year has in store!
