Organic Helpers in the Vineyard

As our vines take a breather we are already focused on next year’s crop. Currently, we are planning which cover crops to utilize in order to ensure our grapes have a happy harvest.

Why plant cover crops? 

Cover crops are some of the hardest working crops in the vineyard. They protect the vines from weeds, pests, and disease. They help enrich the soil with components such as nitrogen and other nutrients which encourage the soil structure and root growth. Cover crops are one of the best organic helpers a vineyard manager can utilize.
