Planting and Renovation

  • Old vines are burned off, and the roots are removed.  Any excess topsoil is also removed, screened, pulverized, and later sold.  Sand is added or removed to make the bed level.  New vines are then planted.  

  • It takes about 3-5 years for a new bed to be productive.​

Irrigation 

  • After the snow melts, the plants are held under water until the ground thaws.  Irrigation pipes are put in place, and frost watch begins for the crew.

  • If temperatures reach 35 degrees, sprinklers are turned on to protect the plants from freezing. 

  • The crew has frost watch all spring, summer, and fall until harvest ends.
