Vitis Vinifera, the European grape planted in the western US, is hardy only to about 0°F. We grow chardonnay and riesling, but must bury them every year. First they are pruned, then tied as in this photo.

Melodie Seymer joined the team in March 2020. A friend of more than 40 years, Melodie lives in our rental house and has a dozen years experience running a nursery and loves plants! She's learning to enjoy the winemaking side of things too and works as Vineyard/Winery apprentice. She's also responsible for much of the nice landscaping touches around the place. She moved to Montana three years ago.
