Ruby Hill Vineyard Update
In the vineyard, the time of year is a time of transition. From blossoms to berries and proliferation to pruning, the vines are busy!
Our winemaker Jesse is carefully monitoring this crucial stage, keeping an eye on the health of the vines and their transition from blossom to berry, referred to as "fruit set."
Weather conditions this year have been beneficial for the vines. Tendrils like these reach out from the rows of each vineyard block, voracious and verdant.
We have seen exuberant growth all across the estate, including the little patch of Zinfandel right in front of our tasting room.
Our vines have sent out shoots and leaves for months, gaining gorgeous green volume. Soon, we will begin the process of leafing, in which some of the leafy canopy is removed so that the young fruit can be exposed to the sunlight.
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc fruit benefit even more from sun exposure than any other varietal. Sunlight is a key ingredient in allowing the fruit to express itself in our final product.
In some spots in the vineyard, you can still spot the remnants of the blossoming stage, but we are delighted to see the developments with fruit set throughout the estate.
This important development into little clusters has been accomplished, giving us a glimpse of what the 2022 harvest will hold later this year. These clusters won't be tiny for long, so stay tuned!
