Up and down the Valley wine makers are scanning the skies for clouds hoping for more rain. Some is forecast for next week in answer to their prayers. Rain is important to replenish the water table for summer drip irrigation and (God forbid) sprinkler frost protection after the grapevines have "pushed" leaves (more on that in the April newsletter).

Now the vines are getting expertly pruned and vineyards are beginning to look more tidy, though I enjoy the energetic, wild-abandon look. It's quite a sight to see a family of Bluebirds flitting among the yellow-blooming mustard and earth-colored vines these days. Other locals you may see now are the Canada Geese* flying overhead (and parading on the golf courses), huge Blue Herons soaring or hunting along waterways, or Steelhead slowly heading up the Napa River to lay their eggs.

We encourage you to visit during this time of year, it's quiet and peaceful, and everyone has time to give you special attention. You may need an umbrella occasionally but that's a minor inconvenience compared to the natural beauty. And if it rains, head for the spas! http://www.napavalley.com/lodging/resorts.html *(1 Canada Goose, 2 Canada Geese, only we have several hundred!)
