A lot of hard work, care and maintenance are dedicated to preserving and harvesting a flourishing vineyard. However, the fruits of the labor are extremely rewarding when you drink the delicious wine made with rich grapes like those found in the Stonehaus. While the making of wine may be your cup of tea, growing fruit that does justice to mead is something a winegrower knows very well.
When you intend to grow such sweet grapes, it is evident that your vines will be prone to infestation. That is why there is no room for error or abandonment. Good vines like the ones grown at Stonehaus in Westlake Village are exceptionally well maintained and pruned to stimulate growth. But there is more to garden maintenance that pruning should ensure that the soil under the plants is light and moist. In case it snows, be sure to clean the icicles that cover the roots.The Stonehaus producers make a special effort to ensure that plants are not compromised in the first years of life. That is when there is the most excellent chance that weeds and lost plants will take over and that would be the end of your harvest dreams.
