The vineyard now consists of 14 acres planted in mostly bareroot vines and some potted vines. Blue grow tubes surround each plant and serve as an individual greenhouse. They went on as soon as the vines were planted and will come off the first of September in time to give the vine trunks time to harden off before winter. The trellis goes up in late July. See the drone in action!
