Arrow Lakes Vineyard Grape Update mid-July 2015

Just a quick update to show where things are this year. Again, its been a hot year so far, and dry, we are way ahead of normal (2 weeks forsure) and the Ravat 34 and Marechal Foch look excellent and should average about 1-1.5 lb per trellis foot.  Evangeline and L'Acadie Blanc looks good also, but we will have to net in early August this year, usually we do this at the end of August - early September.
Here is a few Pictures
