Snow Days at Shadow Ranch
Sitting at an elevation of 2300 ft, Shadow Ranch will occasionally get some snow, but this past weekend was something else! Grapevines are dormant this time of year, so we do not expect much of an effect from the snow on our vines. We have well-draining sandy soils, so we can also avoid the worry of drowning out the root zone. However we do hope that all this precipitation will be good for our water table and for California's overall water supply. We can certainly hope that the many feet of snow the Sierras are receiving will continue to melt into our reservoirs through the summer. In meantime, we get to enjoy a rare snow day in the Sierra Foothills!
If you weren't able to make it out to the tasting room during the storm, never fear! Tracey, one of our incredible Tasting Room Hosts, was able to capture some beautiful images before the snow began to melt away. Tracey is not only a great photographer, but an artist of many disciplines! If you would like to see more of her work, check out @traceysirbellopetportraits on Instagram!
We feel so lucky to be able to experience nature's beauty right outside the door of the tasting room. Winter, spring, summer and fall all have their own beauty and we love sharing that with you. Join us during any season to see what beauty we have in store!
