What Advanced Vineyard Systems Does for Your Vineyard
Advanced Vineyard Systems specializes in facilitating legacy vineyards from conception to realization. Whether you are a novice or already established, we will be with you every step of the way.
Vineyard layout and design are by far the most crucial decisions that will be made in your vineyard. What variety of grapes, what clones, how many different clones, plant spacing, row width, vines per acre, row direction, and irrigation are all decisions that are made in the first year of a vineyard, and will affect the vineyard for years to come. Our consultants will expertly analyze the soils of a site to pair the proper clone and rootstock to the proper blocks.
Land clearing and gentle shaping can increase plantable acreage and make tractor driving safer. Some extra time during those first exciting days when dirt finally begins to fly, can pay rich dividends in the years to come!
Development is done exclusively ‘in house’. We create trellis systems as well as install precision micro-irrigation systems.
Our irrigation systems make it possible to get your first crop of grapes 1 – 2 years before dry-farmed vineyards! The irrigation emitters are completely controlled, allowing us to get the vines established faster, while using as little water as possible, protecting precious water resources.
These top-of-the-line systems will be used as the years pass to protect the grapes from severe drought and heat spikes. Irrigation greatly reduces the number of vines that die during the establishment phase, and thus, greatly increases the uniformity and quality of your vineyard!
For new growers or growers who have already established vineyards but want to expand or supplement their acreage, AVS, Inc. can provide premium grafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay stock. We are also happy to work with you to propagate your own special budwood.
