Outlook Droughtful

The rest of the country may not know it, buried under heaps of snow as it is, but California is in the midst of the worst drought in recorded state history. The Occidental area where our vineyards are located have only recently topped twenty inches of rain when it should be in the sixties. Our Hillcrest vineyard has decided it’s spring already and is in full bud-break almost a full month ahead of schedule.
