Bud break

Weeks after the Chardonnays and young red vines have popped their first leaves, above, the Old Vines are just beginning to stir. A few weeks of bright April sunshine and a good tilling of the soil sets the stage. Then several days of gentle rain gave this plant the jump start it needed. Bud break is a marker in Wine Country, a signal that the season has started and next fall's wine is on the way.
