Fragrance and Color in the Vineyard

March 7th, 2022

At this time of year, many Napa Valley Vineyards are aglow with brilliant yellow Mustard. Kitoko Vineyard also reflects a warm yellow hue, but its yellow coloring comes from  "Chamaemelum Nobile,"  commonly known as Roman or English Chamomile.  In addition to adding color in the dreary season, its pleasant calming fragrance smells like the tea of the same name. It has many acclaimed health benefits, but importantly it attracts insect predators, which help keep the whole ecosystem balanced.
