This is the season to get ready for next season

Prepping the vineyard for the 2018 growing season.

prepping the vineyard soil for 2018 vintage Chateau Margene

Holidays are done and now the work in the vineyard starts up again with prepping the soil.  A few days after a nice light rain,  we are discing/rolling the dirt so we can drill the seeds (barley, oats, bell beans, peas) which will make up our cover crop.  This will be the main nutrient addition for the season as we adhere to our organic and sustainable practices.
