Vineyard Work Begins in Earnest - Vine End Post Locations Mapped and Staked
Jamie Rojas, owner of 2nd Generation Development out of Napa, is seen here on site with his crew. They are mapping out the placement of 278 ten foot vine end posts for the vine rows in the vineyard. These vine end posts will be driven some 4 1/2 feet into the earth! Think of them as the "foundation" for the vineyard.
In the second photo - Jaime marks out where the Boardman Canal (aka "ditch water") conduit runs underground so that we don't hit during construction and flood the vineyard and our neighbors!
