Our weather in Sonoma

is beginning to warm up!

 

This is great news! 
Vintage 2020” has a lot of catching up to do.

Hopefully, these warm days will help us catch up
on the growth and get this season going.

To help them grow, grapevines need different compounds that are found in the soil and water.

However, one of the most important ingredients comes directly from Mother Nature, sunlight.




Grapevines use the suns energy
in the process of photosynthesis,
to produce food allowing it to grow.

With warm temperatures the vines flourish,
and their newly developed shoots
can grow up to an inch a day.

In April most of the growth is contained to
upward shoot growth.

This is why we can notice a major change in growth in a few days time during,
the warmer than normal days.



 

In May, the grapevines will begin to grow
into a vegetative state.

The upward shoot growth slows down,
and the energy begins to grow
the shoots laterals and create fruit.

A lateral is a series of leaves that grow horizontally, that will help shade the fruit zone.

During the vegetative and fruiting stages,
warm sunny weather is highly recommended.

This allows the vines to become healthy
and produce quality fruit.


 

So, what happens if it gets too hot?
Grapevines grow best, during the growing season, when the temperatures
are a high of 90 degrees and a low of 60 degrees. 

Anything over 90 degrees causes the vines to go into a nonproductive state,
but within reason, does not harm them.

 This time of year we can still be concerned with frost (low of 32 degrees),
so the warmer temperatures are welcomed.

 
This week, we will begin our fungicide program.

This is the latest we have ever started,
due to the cooler weather and the slow growth.

Hopefully, Mother Nature will bless us
with some nice warm sunshine
for the rest of the growing season.
