The strategy for planting the vineyard was just as painstaking. As the vineyard was laid out, using the North Star as a point of reference, Robin meticulously planned for straight rows - one after another. The first line was drawn with a tractor. Each row after was based on the proceeding row with the tractor digging each line. What the family envisioned and what they ended up with was quite different; however, in hindsight, they wouldn't change it for anything. Currently, the vineyard rows have a gentle "S" shape to them.
The planting of the vines was to be equally spaced. Each person took a piece of string and tied a knot part way down serving as the spacing distance between each planted vine. "Well, each person tied a somewhat different length and therefore, our plants don't line up perfectly." No worries, the wines produced from this vineyard are spectacular. It's as if the grapes preferred this situation. Total number of vines at Pfeiffer Vineyards equals 38,500.
