TILLING NEW PLOTS

By 24 June 2016News

The terroir is a mix of multiple factors, and one of them is the planting density. That is why we are now replanting all our plots in a high planting density : 7 700 vins stocks /ha instead of former 5 500 vine stocks /ha.
This kind of planting density is achieved by narrowing the vine rows. And we have to buy some new equipment to take care of these new plots !
We have received this week a new high-clearance tractor that will let us till the soil of these narrowed vine rows.

Ces densités de plantation sont possibles en resserrant les rangs de vigne. Il nous faut donc nous équiper pour pouvoir travailler ces nouvelles parcelles.
Nous avons reçu cette semaine notre nouvel enjambeur, qui passe par-dessus le rang de vigne. Celui-ci nous permettra de travailler le sol de ces nouvelles parcelles.
