Young Tempranillo

Young Tempranillo

Tempranillo vines 18 months old in winter 2009 (in amongst the grass stalks) - the final trellising poles are being installed to be followed by wires for training the vines in the coming season. Flemming manually thumped in each trellis pole from on top of the ladder using a 15 kg thumper. There were 161 poles each requiring about 40 thumps - so a total of 6440 thumps and a total lift of over 9.6 tonnes. This what it looks like 4 years later.
