Ground breaking for our research vineyard! We decided to install a small research vineyard in the northwest corner of the property in order to evaluate different methods for vine planting. We will be planting 8 different varietals in groups of 6 (2 rows of 24 vines.) Methods such as grow tube usage, starter fertilizers, and varietal suitability will be evaluated prior to the installation of the larger vineyard in Spring 2005.
