A Video: The Value of Shoot Positioning

Today, we're posting the first video explaining the hows and whys of what we do here on Gantz Family Vineyards. As we chronicle the progression of our first growing season -- from the establishment of the cover crop to harvest when our fruit will be delivered to Kosta Browne Winery -- we hope to impart a little knowledge about the maintenance of a vineyard from owner/growers Clay and Celeste Gantz, our viticulturalist Kris Lowe and our vineyard manager Ulises Valdez. Today, Clay Gantz explains the importance of shoot positioning. With our vineyard's baby vines growing like crazy, he tells us why it is important to keep those sun-reaching tendrils out of the rows.
