Bud break has begun on eastern Washington. This picture is of Nebbiolo, which broke on March 23rd at Windrow Vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. The second image is of Merlot from the same site.

Windrow Vineyard and Tero Estates co-owner Jan Roskelley, who took the pictures, said this is about two weeks ahead of historical averages. In 2012 - a year with heat accumulation that tracked closely to 20-year averages, we posted images of Windrow Nebbiolo bud break on April 6th. It looks like 2016 will be the fourth consecutive early start to Washington's growing season.
