Things are progressing nicely at MFV. With our watering schedule locked in and our perimeter secure, our only issue comes from the sky at this point. The amount of birds we have throughout our vineyard would make Alfred Hitchcock jealous. Shiny ticker tape, also known as scare tape, has been tied to high points on vines throughout the grounds, which help to scare the birds away. Netting the vineyard will be a goal in future years, but as of now our best defense is the shiny strands of plastic.
