Owner Ed Stoessel and his Bobcat to the Rescue
As you read in my last post, our vineyard at the Mount has truly become the "MSJ Wines Owners Vineyard". I've been delighted by our fellow owners stepping up to assist in various vineyard projects.
Last weekend it was Ed Stoessel and his son-in-law, John Russell who helped with an important vineyard project. They loaded up their Bobcat 763 Skid Steer Loader and arrived at the vineyard by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday. John and Ed were able to clear the road around the vines where we had some very large rocks that were making it very difficult for me to make turns with my tractor.
They also did some earth moving at the top of the vineyard near the Boardman canal where it was too steep and I was unable to safely make tractor turns at the end of the vine rows. By noon the work was complete and our mission accomplished.
Thank you Ed and John!
Stay tuned for more blogs on this very exciting time for our vineyard....
