Our harvester needs a lot of work on the bow rods that shake the fruit off the vines. More accurately, the work is on the mechanism that supports the bow rods. Some parts are being replaced for the first time since we purchased the harvester in about 2010.

Our pickups are getting routine maintenance done on them and we are getting oil changes done on all three tractors and on four Gators.

Finally, part of the vineyard staff is helping out in the cellar by doing a deep cleaning of the floor around the bottling line. Because of the significant amount of water, steam during cleaning, and general moisture under the bottling line, mildew and fungus build up under the bottling line. It takes time and a hot water pressure washer to get it all cleaned up.
