When the winter comes to and end and the temperatures begin to rise, the vineyards wake from their winter dormant state and the vegetative cycle initiates. The sap starts to run through its vessels and, through the cuttings made when pruning, a transparent liquid starts flowing, which is the first sign of the vegetative cycle initiating. From then onwards, we start to see the first shoots in the vines. This stage is called bleeding. Did you know that up to 5 litres of this liquid may flow from each plant?
