Open:Â Year Round
Our farm sits on a beautiful piece of land; just under 9 acres. However, since it is a workingÂ farm it sometimes can become untidy. In April or May, depending on the weather, we'll beÂ doing the pruning of our 700 or so grapevines. Also in May is when we do our shearing.Â Come June it's time to do the regular upkeep of the vines which includes putting up moreÂ wire, repairing the wire and fence posts, and making sure the irrigation system works. ByÂ the time July comes around its time to do pest control. By late August we're checking theÂ
sugar content to see if it's time to harvest. Also during the summer is what we call 'criaÂ watch.' A cria is a baby alpaca. We know when our girls are due and so for 2 weeks beforeÂ and 2 weeks after the due date we keep a close eye on them. We even hose them down toÂ make sure they don't get overheated. Towards the end of September is usually when weÂ harvest the grapes. That is a very busy day! Come November we have to slow down a bitÂ since it's getting colder outside but we're busy inside keeping an eye on the wine. ThroughÂ
out this year we're also hosting brunches, dinners, weddings, bus tours as well as privatelyÂ hosted parties. We love what we do and we're happy that it has become our full time occupation.
