In with the new, and trimming the old. The past couple weeks we’ve gotten to plant some new Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Pinot Noir vines. We’ve also been keeping up with existing vines in the vineyard – trimming or suckering them to help promote the growth where we want it – premium grapes – and tying new growth to their supportive stakes.
Happy Spring! Some photos from our initial work marking and setting up a mountain side vineyard this past first week of spring:
Showing us how it’s done:
After the last of the winter rains, we had a beautiful view in one of the vineyards we take care of…. fields of red clover (cover crop)!
The rain has passed, the grass has grown, and it’s time for weed whacking in the vineyard. Let us know if you need help clearing your property.
Some photos from this past week:
We’re finishing up pruning. You can see the cut vines and the brush in between the rows.
This week we removed old vines from a small vineyard block, clearing out the roots and making space for new plants in the spring. #makesitlookeasy
