It is that time of year where we can relax, enjoy the holiday season and put the past year into perspective. 2015 was an interesting one for us at Pride Mountain Vineyards with many stand-out events that will make it a year that will be remembered.
We're halfway home and our grapes are just beginning the process of veraison, the time when they start to soften and turn from green to either golden (for white wine grapes) or black (for red wine grapes). It has been an interesting year, with changeable weather and lots of surprises.
This is the warmest and driest winter that we can remember in our 25 years at Pride Mountain Vineyards . . . As seen in the photo, the chardonnay vines have already had their buds break and first leaves emerge.
