Burning of the Vines

Layton's Chance Winery & Vineyard. Burning of the vines tradition.A tradition that originated in France, the Burning of the Vines marks the end of winter pruning and the start of budburst. The tradition involves collecting grapevine cuttings then burning them to ensure that any disease from the dead cuttings cannot be spread to the nude vines; a symbolism of death and rebirth by fire. 

Our 1st annual Burning of the Vines takes place on Saturday, May 2nd. Celebrate with us another successful year of winemaking at our farm with a bonfire of the 2014 vine cuttings.
