The 2018 growing season has officially begun, with Tertulia Cellars vineyard manager Ryan Driver reporting bud break in Syrah at Elevation Vineyard in Walla Walla Valley.

Consistently the larger Columbia Valley’s earliest site in recent years, bud break took place at Elevation on April 12th last year and April 1st in 2016.

Here’s to a great 2018 growing season!
