The Vineyard Crew is finishing up the short pruning of Sabrevois, St. Croix, St. Pepin, and LaCrosse. They will start mowing in order to cut up the wood that has been pruned from the vines and to clean up the rapidly growing grass. They will also continue spraying fungicide.
They will be planting 4,000 new vines this year and the rooted cuttings will arrive during the week of May 15. Most of our work will then shift to getting them planted and hooked up to the trellis.
