Home Vineyard: Growing Wine Grapes at Home
Hello and welcome to my home vineyard Let’s get an idea of the land. As you can see this is simply a simple side yard it’s got about 55 feet of area long twenty-six feet of area broad we chose to go with twenty two-foot long rows north-south dealing with , the rows are spaced about five feet apart to give us adequate space for the vines to grow and for us to walk and manage through. We are planting about 4 plants per row to provide it plenty of area to expand and grow for the rows. We utilized basic fence posts these are eight-foot fence post sunk about three feet deep we attempted to set about 2 feet deep however it just wasn’t steady enough so we went that additional foot for stability the wire is fourteen gauge wire. We elected to go with the vertical trellising partly because it was simpler and partially since the north south dealing with rows, it permit it to obtain sun at all hours of the day.
We have a drip irrigation lines ran along the bottom we will be utilizing half gallon per hour drips, 2 per plant, that enables us to change the water flow and handle the irrigation a little easier than if we utilized a much heavier circulation. We’ll in fact be planting syrah grapes because we have the tendency to be in a warmer, drier climate throughout the summer. Doing something like pinot noir would require higher cooler temperatures. That sort of thing that’s our vineyard. We’ll be planting the grapes next week and we’ll return then.
