Photo gallery: Bud break on Washington’s Red Mountain
RED MOUNTAIN, Wash. – The first signs of the 2014 vintage are emerging across Washington’s Columbia Valley, especially on Red Mountain in the eastern Yakima Valley.
Bud break typically happens about the first 10 days of April in Washington, and everything was right on track this year. A quick tour Friday of Red Mountain showed leaves and even the early stages of tiny clusters showing up on vines at Col Solare, Hedges, Red Heaven and Ciel du Cheval.
Following are a few photos we took Friday afternoon.
