It’s snowing in Napa. The Monticello Merlot is at 1,500 feet and with temperatures dipping into the 20s winterizing and pruning is well underway. In November I read an article on the most purchased winery and vineyard equipment for the season.
54% of those surveyed bought a Destemmer crusher.
Here is Thomson Vineyard’s Top 10 list of what The Farmer bought and how he is currently using some of his new toys! Let’s just say, Christmas came early.
1. Destemmer crusher
3. Air Post Driver
6. Heald Hauler
7. House over a House (don’t ask. see bon jovi video below.)
8. Hanna pH meter
9. Six FasTrack Tickets $29/each, plus late fees for neglecting the mail in the Vineyard P.O. box
10. A new office girl
