Bud break in the Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012

Spring is almost in the air. At least the calendar says it is spring, even if the temperatures are still hovering in late winter territory. The wind still has mild bite, just a bit cool.

Tonight, I mowed grass for the first time this season. Not anything vineyard-related, just cutting grass. But that means the weather is getting warmer, the grass has started growing again, at least in places, and it was time to knock the tops off of those greener clumps of grass.

Bud break will be here very soon, and the excitement of the new growth will get us going. Along with that new growth, I am excited to show our newly redesigned web site. The original served its purpose – it gave Addison Farms Vineyard an online presence. But it lacked any real design or imagination. Great visuals are not my strength.

Dianne, on the other hand, is an awesome designer, and she has taken all of the same information and made it so much more appealing. I am excited to share the new look with you.
