Les Collines Vineyard

chicory in LCVChicory in the Vineyard
Les Collines sits at the base of the Blue Mountains. Certain times of the year, we are quite dry at this site, therefore use drip irrigation. Other times, we get a LOT of moisture here—hence the chicory. It's deep root systems suck up extra moisture, rather than the vines' roots!
