Early Bud Break in Napa

March 4th, 2015

Kitchak bud break 2015

An unseasonably warm Spring has marked the vines with early bud break at Kitchak Cellars in the Napa Valley. On a recent visit with Peter Kitchak during a vineyard walk, we noticed the vines coming to life after being dormant this winter. Our hope is that the valley stays frost-free now so the tender blossoms are not bothered. A late frost can seriously affect the yield. Grapes are just another agricultural crop, with the all the same perils of farming. I never cease to be amazed every time I open a bottle of nice wine!
