In every vineyard, individual vines fail over the course of the year. In young plantations this occurs not so often, but in old ones more frequently. In order for a vineyard to remain complete and continue to produce good crops, it is therefore necessary to replant vines every year.

Replanting is a lot of hard manual work. For our vineyard area, there are already several hundred vines to be replanted each year, and the holes do not dig themselves. This year the work is already finished and we are very happy about it! Below we show a series of pictures of the work, in case someone wants to plant a vine in his own garden.
