Even though the grapes have been harvested there is still a ton of work to do in the vineyard to start preparing for next spring. This morning I spent a few hours applying herbicide in this year's viognier rows to ensure clean rows going into the winter. Definitely helps the first application next April - won't be spraying large weeds just the new sprouts, thus a more effective treatment. Didn't get to finish the whole vineyard though, as it started to sprinkle. Hopefully it didn't rain hard enough to wash off the chemicals, otherwise I'll have to do it all over again which would certainly put a smile on my face...
