Making great Oregon wine starts in the vineyard. It’s a continuum from the first planting of the vines to the harvesting of the grapes. And each step of the way is critical to the success of the coming vintage.
During winter in western Oregon, when the grape vines go dormant, it’s time for one of the most important jobs in the vineyard – pruning.
This time last year the Oregon Experience crew visited with Chehalem vineyard owner Harry Peterson-Nedry and Vineyard Manager Chad Douglas who together explain how pruning prepares the grape vines for the growing season ahead.
