Spring is in the air

Bud break - 27th March

First leaves appear - 10th April

With pruning out of the way the vines are starting to show first signs of life, and it won't be too long before the rather barren, sad looking vineyards are transformed into the lush green colours of summer. Indeed, progress at the start of the growing cycle is quite dramatic, and within two weeks the first small leaves are beginning to appear.

Weather in Galicia continues to be quite changeable, with much needed rain continuing to fall on almost a daily basis (much more typical of the region than the last two years). The danger of spring frost has all but passed, so the next key moment in the cycle will be flowering - as always we will be keeping our fingers crossed.
