The vines that I have pruned are bleeding sap like crazy (see photo) so they are well on their way to bud break. In checking the vines they all look really healthy and cutting into the buds they also look healthy with a high winter survival rate. The only one that was not great was the pinot noir as it shows lots of fungal pressure on the canes. This is foresure a carry over from the fungal pressure we experienced on the pinot noir last summer. It was the mildest winter that we've recorded yet with coldest temp being -15c and as of March 31 it was 22c in the vineyard. So in all there is a strong likelihood that we'll have allot of healthy buds and flowers this spring.
