Right About Now

Greetings from the Adams Ranch!

Spring has sprang and while the temperatures are still pretty frigid at night, the days have been almost too nice. We could use some more rain, that's for sure. We are on track to prune the vineyard and collect fresh cuttings this week and will be transplanting last year's nursery vines into our meter-by-meter block.

In wine news, a general heads up. Wine club has been released and now is the time to log into your account and customize your orders. 

Now on to fresh flowers!

These purple flowers are called Storkbill Filaree (Erodium botrys) and are native to southern Europe. As adorable as these little fellers are, when they go to seed they make little brown corkscrews that readily cling to flip flops, socks and shoelaces. These and other wildlowers have started popping up and our cover crop is coming in nicely. In the coming weeks we will see all sorts of native and non-native, annual and perennial grasses, flowers, clovers and lugumes carpeted throughout the vineyard.

Ping us with any questions.


And now, the news.
In 10 days it will be Spring. 

The vines remain asleep but other things are waking up. All of the photos below were taken today, a day that went from a frosty morning to golden sunshine, a hail storm, light rain and back to sunshine. 

The pullets desperately wish to stay in their coop, but we are still experiencing freezing temperatures at night and as you will see below, in the daytime too.

Next week we will have a full wine release update. We have an exciting batch of wines to share.

Our sweet doggie Lulu says, "Enjoy the photos!"

Batten down the hatches! Hail today at the Adams Ranch Vineyard.

A lovely wild fern.

Fragrant wild mint.

Gorgeous wild Peonies on the back 40.

Our pullets are feathering out but they are still peepish. 
"Don't bring us back inside, we like it out here!"

Whelp, that's all for now. 

Stay tuned for wine club release information.

As always, we appreciate you.
