Vineyard:

Private tour with the Vineyard Manager of the vineyard, including an overview of the different equipment and techniques used in the vineyard. We participated in activities such as pruning new shoots, fruit dropping, tunneling, and toured the newly planted areas. During the tour we also talked in depth about preventing mildew, and administering the right amount of needed nutrients to the vines themselves. NPK, Nitrogen for growth, Phosphorus for fruit development and Potassium for veraison. The work day was very hands on and educational, developing our knowledge of the vineyard and how much diligence it takes to produce several different varietals.
