Alternate Trellising Systems

One of the things we are experimenting in our vineyard is alternate trellising systems for our vines. Most of our vines are on a the double arm kniffen system or the Geneva double curtain which we have for one row. A trellising system is important for maximizing yields and can influence ease of harvest. Some alternate trellising systems we have used are shown in the pics below.

We have a fence the goes around our first vineyard so we decided to plant vines along this fence and allow them to grow up the fence (with minimal pruning)

A alternate/experimental trellis that we made for three of our vines. This one allows the plants to grow up the chicken wire encircling the vine and grow then attach to the  wire covering above each plant in order to make a canopy of vines.
