Planting Vineyards with Volker Scheu from VinPlant
This show was published 26 May 2012
VinPlant is a company that plants vineyards for producers across the whole of Europe. We caught up Volker Scheu while he was busy planting up the Rathfinny Estate vineyards in Sussex. Volker tells us about the equipment he uses, including a tractor that is guided by satellite and plants each vine within an accuracy of 15mm. Amazingly they can plant up to 12,000 high-grafted plants a day and as many as 20,000 short-grafted plants. As well as Rathfinny, they have also planted for Camel Valley, Chapel Down and many other vineyards in the UK.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
