Each new year, the work in the vineyard begins all over again in late winter or early spring while the vines are in their winter dormancy. In our existing vineyard, the vine's canes are carefully pruned in February. In early April, any replanting that needs to occur in the vineyard will occur as well.
It is all the natural surrounding elements of the vine that help define the wine. Each sip of Vino al Lago wine enjoyed tells a story of the Santa Rosa Valley, our vineyard, and our winemaker, Guillaume.
