Lafond Vineyard Burning Creek Block

(click image to enlarge)

Our Burning Creek block, 37 acres of Pinot Noir planted last year, is doing extremely well. This spring we cut the vine back to two buds, keeping it still in the growth tube. The first year the vine grows a root system, the second year the canes that will bear fruit in the third year.

The whole block has thrived. The vine in the photo has two canes extending well above the growth tube, these will be tied to the wire this coming winter and next spring the canes that grow from it will carry the fruit.
