Seeding Wildflowers

This week at the winery we're seeding wildflowers in our Seaview vineyard! Each year we plant wildflower seeds in the springtime. Wildflowers provide a couple of different benefits for our vineyard. They're a great distraction for bugs and pests that could negatively affect our grape vines. Having a diverse plant life close to the ground means that pests will often go to the wildflowers instead of the vines. This cuts back out the need to use pesticides and reduces our carbon emissions. The wildflowers not only help out our biodiversity but they'll also look great when they bloom in a couple of months!
