Last week we went to Freed Estate vineyard with Kate the garden lady. We learned how to cut the vines, how the ship the grapes, and how the protect the harvest from the birds. They show us where they bring the guests during wine tours. They talked about how they were not a state of the art vineyard. Since the don’t have the tech a huge vineyard would have, they have no frost protection. The vineyard overseer says they hope their vines and grapes don’t freeze. The overseer said they leave the baby grape vines on a drip water system for three years before the vines can get water on there own.
