There is a lot more to wines than one realizes. The best wines are made in the vineyard, not in the winery. Our carefully curated selection focuses on terroir-driven wines through traditional farming methods. In addition, many of the wines found at La Vid are organic, biodynamic, or sustainable.
Weather and microclimates are essential for the maturation of the grapes leading up to the harvest. The growing season usually takes anywhere from 140 to 180 days after budding. Budding or Bud Break, as it is known, is the first phase of growth after dormancy in the vine’s seasonal cycle. After that, “shoots” start to emerge from these “buds,” which turn into leaves that lead to the flowering phase. It is these flowers that turn into berries. The small berries take about three months to develop to their full size. Veraison is the next step in the maturity of the grape. This biological event is quick and is essentially when the grapes go from green to their final color. Physiological maturity is the last stretch before harvest. During this part of the growing cycle, the grape is undergoing the final stages of development.
