Prior to the machine harvesting of grapes, vines were often trained on a T trellis which allowed sunlight and fresh air freely into the vine canopy. When Richard and Marie bought this block most of these trellises were looking decidedly lazy and many of the vines were lying on the ground. With a bit of TLC and some leftover concrete to cement the new strainers into position, these grand old gnarlies were saved and today produce some of the best fruit in the region.
