Hello Wine Enthusiasts ~ Last Friday we awoke to 7 inches of snow on the ground at Burrell School Vineyards! With the vines being dormant through the winter, this was Mother Nature’s way of reminding them to keep resting. The snow also cleans the air and prevents any insects or fungi that might still be hanging out on the wood from doing any more damage. This is perfect for making sure they are healthy and cleansed for the Spring’s bud break. Should be a great 2023 wine season!
