Bird Gard is an inexpensive option to netting the vineyards.
Birds are a very real problem. Last year the block we picked was totally decimated by birds. There was no crop, not even the 0.649 ton that we got this time.
King Vineyard is around Piner Road and Olivet Road. Frost can be a problem in this area of the Russian River, especially during budbreak which is around March. Ben said they used the vineyard fans about 7 times this season.
