July means pruning time, which is all about setting up structure for the coming season, and the true start of what will end up in a Pooley bottle. We asked our Vineyard Manager Hannah to share what's been going on at Pooley Wines;
"The recent rain here in the Coal River Valley was much needed after a record dry season and has set us up nicely for the spring. Thankfully we hadn't started to prune when the rain set in, our timing was good in that regard. Now my job is to allow the vines to go into dormancy relaxed with their bellies full so to speak.
I'm a sympathetic pruner and will be treating each vine with individual intent and pruned in accordance to what it can support. That way we can continue to improve our yield and fruit quality while taking into account vine capacity for both vegetative and reproductive growth."

We love chatting to Hannah and will be checking in over the winter months to check in on those full bellies!
