Hello friends, I am planning a vineyard and the area I have in mind has a gentle slope. I am wondering about planting the vines on swales on contour, but I can't find any information about doing this online. We are in TN and I wonder if our rainfall would make it unnecessary anyway. What are your thoughts? Thank you!
I have been trying to solve the contour / not to contour question for some time. I think there might be a few resources that might help. But I was hoping to ask a couple of questions first. Is the ultimate goal not to have to water the vines? How much annual rainfall do you get? And when does most of the rain come? (fall, winter, spring?) I thought I had read that vines / grapes don't like to have their feet wet... is that true?
