Many people find a vineyard during the winter to be a bit ugly, dead. And while surely the scene is much more beautiful with full green leaves and lush ripening grapes, the peacefulness of resting vines is not something to overlook.
Every single outside factor affects the grapes, whose liquid you pour so easily in your glass, and winter is no different. During this period, the vine enters into dormancy, when all of the plant´s energy moves into its roots, protecting it from the cold. This is a special time, a time where winegrowers sculpt the vines, selecting the wood that will bear fruit in the coming year.
And though its quiet, great things are still happening, we just won´t have visual proof until the coming of spring!
