We have received so much interest and concern regarding the dreaded Spotted Lanternfly that we would like to take a minute to share our experience with you.
We are sad to report that all six Clover Hill vineyards, to varying degrees, have been bugged by large lanternfly populations for the past 2-3 years. 2019 was a pleasant harvest with nice quality fruit, however our yields were significantly lower than most years. While we are concerned over the impact of the lanternfly, we are not blaming the bad bug entirely for the decrease in fruit. Over the past few years we have experienced excessive rainfall and some colder than normal winter temperatures which we are certain have negatively impacted our vines' abilities to properly produce fruit.
Where does that leave us? We continue to monitor and be proactive in the fight against the Spotted Lanternfly and stay hopeful this pest will not ruin our vineyards; however, only time will tell. We also are very grateful for the beautiful fall season we are having, which is allowing our vines to gather energy and hopefully to winter-over properly. Grape growing is farming, and farming can be tough! We are fortunate for our customers who love and enjoy Clover Hill wines and keep us farming!
What can you do to help? Keep squashing those lanternflies when you see them. Check around your house and property for any egg masses and destroy them. Most importantly, fill your glass with Clover Hill wine and enjoy the beautiful fall season!
