An almond tree in bloom under a cloudless sky on the wayside next to the vineyards. The vines are still in hibernation and have no leaves yet.
Flowering almond tree in the spring.

Winter was short and also quite warm and that has its effects on our environment. Nature is already developing, plants start budding and the animals are waking up from hibernation.

Grapevines shoot relatively late so they will stay dormant at least for some more weaks. Other plants have started growing already like the almond trees that are in full bloom all around us at the moment. One can even find the first young animals of the year already. Hares, rabbits and others are busily caring for their offspring.

As always it is a great thing to walk through an organic vineyard open eyed. But at the start of the season, when everything just begins to develop it is an eaven greater pleasure. This vintage has got an early start, so let’s see how it develops!
