Whitetail deer as well as small game and a myriad of varmints can be seen roaming this land bordering the Gholson Creek valley. AgricultureVineyard: 4+- acres of vines are in production in the vineyard. The vines include Shiraz, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Tempranillo, Viognier, Ruby Cabernet, Grenache, and Mourvedre vinifera varieties. 2+- acres are being planted and expanded, and an additional acre is trellised and drip irrigated for expansion for a total of 8 acres under irrigation. Consult the aerial map for a detailed vineyard layout with the number of rows and vines per row. Note that some of the vines were lost over the past year and are being replaced and expanded, so the total number of vines is not exact. Vineyard design: The southerly slope of the land is perfect for drainage and maximum sun exposure of the vines orientated in north-south positioned rows. The single sided, double cordon trellis system is an optimized design for the hot Texas climate. Two cordons, from the main trunk on which all leaves and canes are removed, are directed toward the north with one cordon on a lower wire and one cordon on an upper wire about 4′ apart. This arrangement provides 1) good airflow from the usual southerly wind flow, 2) reduced heat buildup inside the canopy, and 3) also help in maintaining attachment of the vines to the trellis wire. In the hot climate it is important for leaves to have direct sun and grapes to be primarily shaded with some minimal amount of dappled sunlight. Winter pruning is performed with the objective of having the grapes grown on the top cordon on the east side, thus receiving the cooler morning sun. The lower cordon is pruned so that the grapes will grow on the western side of the trellis such that they have additional shade from the upper canopy and receive the hot afternoon sun. The canopy and trellis system results in premium quality grapes at a maximum production rate (dependent on weather circumstances and critters).
