IN THE VINEYARDS WITH STEVE - A YEAR IN THE VINEYARD:
Walker Hill Vineyard Chardonnay & Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir

In this section, we're documenting each month in the vineyard for 2015, for our Walker Hill Vineyard Chardonnay (in the left column) and Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir (below). We'll show a view of the vineyard, and the progress of the same vine each month. We begin in the winter before the vines wake up, and will conclude at harvest. Check in monthly to watch the progress of the vines!
