Another reason to visit in spring!

If you find yourself fascinated by those bird boxes spotted around the vineyards, you're in for a treat! They're part of a concerted effort to create bird sanctuaries within the vineyards. It's all about fostering a thriving ecosystem where birds can safely nest and contribute to the health of the vineyard.

These bird boxes become buzzing hubs of activity in spring, contributing to natural pest control and pollination, making them heroes of the vineyard! Don't hesitate to ask your host about their bird habitats, you'll be amazed at the stories and passion behind each bird box. Here’s to the winged wonders that add an extra layer of magic to Wine Road!
