Pic of the Vine - April 2018

Monday, April 30, 2018 0 comments

With spring comes an increase in vineyard work, as vines are being shaped for the growing season. Such activity sends contributing photographer Richard Duval on the road to capture the hard work that goes into each bottle.

On a recent trip to Walla Walla Valley, Duval found Tim Armstrong of Armstrong Family Winery pruning their newly acquired vineyard. “Re-vitalizing this vineyard is part of their long-term plan to expand the property and build their winery,” noted Duval. "But for now, the vineyard calls.”

The 2018 growing season has officially begun, with Tertulia Cellars vineyard manager Ryan Driver reporting bud break in Syrah at Elevation Vineyard in Walla Walla Valley.

Consistently the larger Columbia Valley's earliest site in recent years, bud break took place at Elevation on April 12th last year and April 1st in 2016.

Here's to a great 2018 growing season!
