Roses are blooming along the vineyards, mostly dark red. They look beautiful, but they also have a job to do. Roses prefer the same growing conditions as grapevines. Should any damaging insects or fungus enter the area, that will show up on the roses before attacking the vines.Thus keeping eye on possible damage to the grapes is easier, and it can be caught before happening. And needless to say, it adds to the beauty of the landscape!
