Bud Break in Chile

While we were busy crushing and pressing in the fall, our Chilean vineyards were going through bud break.

Bud break is the start of the grape vine’s annual cycle. Bud break is a relaxing time in the vine’s life as long as they don’t experience any intense weather occurrences, such as frost.  Frost can kill the buds or delay their growth.

This season Chile had a some cold weather come through the vineyards. Thankfully our vineyards were able to keep the vines protected and did not have any frost damage. Take a look at the bud break in our Chilean vineyards and get a sneak peak at the harvest ahead.
