A DAY OUT WITH CHRIS ALHEIT

André Morgenthal and myself met up with the bloke from Bishops in the Bottelary Hills early this morning. Our mission for the day was to discuss the economics of old vines and to visit some of these vineyards. It was a stunning day to be out in the office, with the sunrise blessing the stunning hills in Bottelary.

MAPPING OLD VINEYARDS IN SOUTH AFRICA

As part of my job at the Old Vines Project I will map all the vineyards older than 35 years. First I’m doing just the regions. Then I will have to find all the vineyards and GPS them and then each one of them will get their own terrain analysis done, including Area Solar Radiation.
