Vinography Images: Spring Sap

Sap oozes from a cut section of vine in Sonoma’s Alexander Valley. For now, most grapevines in the northern hemisphere are dormant for the winter, allowing growers to prune them sometime in the coming month before the sap begins to flow again. As the weather warms, the vines wake up and begin pushing sap into their extremities, beginning the growth process for another season.
