Home Vineyard Growing Wine Grapes at Home
Hello and welcome to my home vineyard Let's get a lay of the land. As you can see thisis just a simple side yard it's got about 55 feet of space long twentysix feet of space wide we elected to go with twenty twofoot long rows northsouth facing uh. the rows are spaced about five feet apartto give us ample space for the vines to grow
and for us to manage and walk through we are planting about four plants per row to give it plenty of space to spread out and grow for the rows, we used uh. just simple fenceposts these are eightfoot fence post sunk about threefeet deep we tried to go about two feet deep butit wasn't uh. it just simply wasn't stable enough so we went that extra foot for stability
the wire is fourteen gauge wire uh. we elected to go with the verticaltrellising partly because it was easier and partlybecause uh. the north south facing rows, it allow it to get sun at all hours of the day uh. we have a drip irrigation linesran along the bottom we will be using half gallon per hour drips two per plant that allows us to adjust the water
water flow and manage the irrigation a littleeasier than if we used a heavier flow we'll actually be planting syrah grapes because we tend to be in a warmer, drier climateduring the summer doing something like pinot noirwould require greater cooler temperatures. that sort of thing that's our vineyard. We'll be planting the grapes nextweek and we'll come back then.
Wine Making Tips Controlling Grape Harvest in Wine Making
Welcome to the Gundel Winery. I am here onbehalf of expert village. I am Zsolt Kalman, representing Gundel Winery since 1998. Whatwe are talking about now is how to make dry, white wine. These two grape varieties areperfect for dry, white wine. But before we get to the procedure of making wine, we shouldtalk a little bit about what we are doing here in the vine to reduce the quantity ofthe grapes. As you can see, there are bunches on the ground. Because we are reducing theyield, that means that we are cutting off unnecessary bunches that may have diseasebecause this way we can eliminate some unwanted, bad tastes in the must and later in the wine.And also, the quality of the grape and the
must will be much better this way.
Bele Casel on The Winefathers The wild vineyard of Monfumo
Hi everyone this is our vineyard in Monfumo, the oldest vineyard we have at Bele Casel, the most sloping one where we can't work with the tractor so everything has to be handmade. A vineyard where there are only wood posts as it was in the past, as it was a hundred years ago.
The posts come from the woods nearby. A part of this vineyard, this piece of land, hasn't been planted yet and this is what we want to do. We want to plant vines as they did in the past with just wood posts and without moving the soil so with no excavations that could actually make our work easier.
We want to respect what mother nature left us and work hard and do the very best we can. This is why we're asking you to help us realising this great dream we've had in a long time.
