The canes are covered by a mound of dirt with a nice extra protection layer of snow, we have actually received a few more inches of snow since this photo was taken. We are in the process of removing the pruning leftovers in the trellis wire and piling them up for removal from the vineyard. Notice how on the row on the left of the first photo the “brush” has been removed from the trellis vs the right side, which has not yet been removed. We pile up the leftover canes and take them out of the vineyard to remove any overwintering fungus. I've also included a few late fall 2016 and early winter 2017 photos from the vineyard.
