A new way to prune at Creekbend Vineyard

Post by Bernie Parker, Vineyard Manager

It has been a while since my last blog.  We have been busy in the vineyard pruning as well as helping out in production on those really nasty days.  In the vineyard we are happy to have a new piece of equipment that has been a real time saver and reduced the strain on everyone’s shoulders.  As you can see in this video it is a trailer on which the staff rides to prune the vines at about waist high instead of shoulder high.


It also gives everyone a steady pace to work at.  The crew is happy to be out of the mud and snow and we haven’t had any problems with our shoulders.  What a great addition to the vineyard!
