Over the long weekend we realized the last time we provided a glimpse into what the local vineyards look like was quite some time ago. Our last photos showed the very first signs of life in the vineyards following a long winter hibernation–also known as budbreak.

Today, we’re bringing you a few photos that show another major stage in the growing season–flowering. Flowering represents one of the final annual stages before we begin to see actual fruit appearing on the vines. Here are three photos we snapped this weekend in the heart of the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley showing the flowering…Enjoy!
