Growing Grapes in Willamette Valley

Grapes are growing like crazy here in the Willamette Valley on Youngberg Hill Vineyard. The vines have so much pent up energy, with this warmer weather they are growing faster than we can move the wires to hold them in place to get a nice even canopy (the green 7 foot high wall of shoots).

The views on the Hill are as good as it gets and today Mood and Jefferson are at their brightest. Not a cloud in the sky and the humidity is down. The cool ocean breeze is blowing in from the coast. Did I mention heaven?
