This week at the winery our vineyard team is hard at work replacing vineyard posts!
Over the busy summer months and harvest, our vineyard posts can come loose or even break as machinery and vineyard staff tend to the vines. Now that harvest is over and all the grapes are off the vine, it's the perfect time to go through our vineyard and note any posts that are loose or broken, and replace them.
Our vineyard team will drive through each vineyard row, take out loose or broken posts and replace it with a new post. After the new post is in place, we have a tractor that secures the post in the ground.
The winter months are quite relaxed for our vineyard team so it's a great opportunity to get stuck into some important vineyard maintenance.
