The vineyard crew continues to long-prune, remove weeds with the weed badger, and spray herbicide under the vines, all while working around the weather. They will also start spraying sulfur on the trunks and cordons of the vines as soon as it dries out a bit.

In addition, there is continual maintenance. This week we will fix a tile blowout at the Maple Woods vineyard and take steps to improve the turf in a small part of the Maple Woods vineyard, so that when we harvest we won’t tear up the ground cover.

Finally, on Friday, the vineyard team will cut the vines needed for wreath making on Saturday.
