Wire spools mounted at the rear of a tractor, which are unrolled while driving through the rows of vines.
Unrolling wire.

Vines are grown in a wire trellis. We re-planted an old vineyard earlier this year and also renewed all the wiring and support for that occasion. Therefore we mounted more than 35 km wire this week.


Before - vineyard without wire.

35 km is a bit too much to roll out by hand. Using a tractor and the right machinery is much more convinient - almost like taking a walk or easy drive through the vineyard. Mounting the wires to the support has to be done by hand afterwards anyway.

See the pictures for a before-after comparison. It already looks like a real vineyard. The young Grüner Veltiner vines are also growing nicely so it looks like we chose an ideal year for replanting!
