Small Vineyard in Monte Sereno

There are just about 40 plants in this vineyard just outside of downtown Los Gatos. The address is Monte Sereno, but it's just 2 blocks from the main drag in Los Gatos.

The plants are Merlot from our best guess and are about 15 years old. There's a mix though of cordons from very mature to brand new which makes me think the vineyard was probably not taken care of at some point in the past, then restored.

Stefania and I went out and did all the pruning a few weeks ago. It took both of us about 35 minutes to finish and carry out the cuttings. We'll have more pictures from this vineyard as we go through the year.
