Another load of vines getting prepped for shipment, looking happy in their Elle Pots—and why wouldn’t they be?

Elle Pots are root, air, and water permeable, and fully degradable. They go straight into the ground, lowering labor costs and reducing the risk of transplant shock. Savings for you, and a stronger start for your vines. That’s why all our vines are in Elle Pots.

FFA Pruning Contest 2023

We had the honor of sponsoring the FFA pruning contest again this year. Our grower relations rep, John Moso, served as a judge for the event, which was held at Kautz Farms in Lodi. Several FFA chapters participated, with 50 students representing cities from Redding to Avenal. The contest included a written test followed by a timed pruning of bilateral, Quad, and cane pruning, and an oral presentation for each pruning style.

It was wonderful seeing the future of viticulture in action!
