It’s been a wet spring and looks like a long warm summer – which means strong vine growth this year.
The Landing grapevines have joined the Christmas rush, with rapid growth throughout the vineyard. All eight varieties are growing strongly, which requires intensive teamwork and attention to keep them healthy by selectively removing by hand the larger leaves which shade the shoots and the grapes.
After more work positioning grapevine shoots and the wires that contain them, we can mechanically trim the tops of the shoots in preparation for the spreading of nets from late December to protect the fruit from birds.
We are featured in the Glengarry’s Christmas edition wineletter.
