The long wait is finally over-our Clone 809 Chardonnay vines are going in the ground. Our vines arrived yesterday and the guys got to work prior to 6am. The crew of approximately 10 guys hit the ground digging. I know I've said this before but watching the planting of the block is fascinating to me. These guys get a rhythm going and they work better than any machine. The block is being planted over 2 days-several thousand vines planted by hand in 12 hours. Good Job guys.
