We have started to make part of our land ready to plant a new vineyard

A few weeks before Christmas, one thinks about anything, but not working in the garden. This year at Sonberk, it’s the exact opposite. Right now, we're grubbing up the vineyard, which means we're removing old vines, including roots, and preparing land for new planting. It's a fairly rare event. "Some of the oldest vineyards in Sonberk are Sauvignon and Chardonnay and their health status and yield were not good, so we will replace them, " explains our winegrower Roman Slouk.

The new vineyard will not be planted right now, and not until next week. For the year 2019, the soil will be resting, and new vines will not come to it until the spring of 2020. "Next year we will work with soil. We will send it for analysis, we will grow mustard, we will fertilize it and the whole process will be completed in about one year with a very deep plow, "says Roman. In the spring of 2020, we plant the Moravian Muscat and Pálava and two of ours very popular varieties. The first harvest should happen in 2023.
