Our New Vineyard’s First Winter

Winter has come hard and fast this year for us. Constant subzero temps (as low as -20+ F) and plenty of snow have made for a challenging first winter for our vines. The deer are out in full force though we have only seen one breach of our fish line surrounding the vineyard(photos below) Otherwise the deer have stayed away from the vineyard (so far).

Tracks from our first and only breech in our fish line barrier surrounding the vineyard. Was definitely a small deer. No vines appeared to be munched on.
