In the vineyards, the buds are breaking with added vigour brought on by warmer weather and spring rain showers. In Spring, the winter dormancy of the vines ends with an exciting array of new growth. Green spurts of energy spell the start of the new season, and the emergence of the next year’s crop.
Early Spring may afford you the luxury of seeing early bursting varieties such as Chardonnay whilst other grape varieties are yet to wake. Spring will also see well established cover crops growing in between the rows, which play an important role in bringing much needed nutrients to feed the vines for their next season of fruit.
Spring also offers the beginning of a renewed concert season, with international acts gracing our Hunter Valley Stages. Wine Festivals, Oktoberfest, market days, Rose Spectacular, Balloon Fiestas, Sculpture and music festivals emerge to entice a range of interests.
