What’s going on in the vineyard?
Currently we are “topping off” our baby vines in the Lanza-Musto Vineyard! When most of you think of “topping off” you think of topping off your barrels. However, in the vineyard topping is where we cut the laterals off the growing vine. We cut all but the top three laterals and this allows the other two to become the cordons when the vine starts to mature.
What you see here are our baby Petite Verdot vines being topped off by Nick & Ricky Lanza.
