There’s a distinct mark in season changes in the Okanagan Valley. Anyone who has lived in the region for the duration of a full change of seasons will attest to the fact that the Valley is passionate about the local fare and the move from the dreary winter months to spring. With the frost and snow virtually gone, the spring season brings about expectation and growth especially for Okanagan-based wineries.

The spring season is when wineries begin the process of gearing up for the busy summer season.  Buds can be seen among the endless rows of vines, as wine makers anticipate the growth of the grapes that determine the success of the vintage year. The pruning process has begun and winery workers can be seen walking the lengths of their vineyards carefully inspecting their vines. And with warmer temperatures on the horizon, the passionate winery owners of the Okanagan Valley are in the zone.

Once the spring season is in full swing it means more preparation and work for the Okanagan wineries in hiring summer staff, tending to the vines, bottling new varietals if applicable, preparing for upcoming wine competitions and most importantly getting ready for the flock of wine enthusiasts in the form of tourists and locals alike.

Just as Okanagan Valley dwellers anticipate the hot, sunny months of summer, so do the winery owners in the region.  For, with the promise of spring is new growth, new varietals to introduce to the world and new clientele to reach and educate on the international merits of the region’s wines.

As counnltasts, we are recommending Google Apps strongly to our clients. The comparison chart between 365 and Google Apps is timely and quite reasonable. Many of our customers are running Google Apps Standard Edition and some of them are planning for the business edition.

I guess that’s why colleges don’t have nicknames like the Voles or the Sqrrlueis.The hawk’s thrust-out chest in the third photo makes him look like he owns the place. But he merely fits in perfectly in the second photo: the paunchy, middle-aged professor with his hands behind his open tweed jacket.
