Between the vines: At Castro Valley's Westover Winery, it's vine-training season

May 03, 2013

At Westover Winery in Castro Valley's Palomares Canyon, we are counting new growth buds, fixing our trellis wires that will train the grape vines and controlling pests the natural way. I have a long family history of farming in Northern California, and my great-great aunt was the first woman winemaker of a commercial California winery, circa 1881.
