Leaf removing in Queenstown Vineyards


Today Ian Wilson and Duncan Smith have been on a Queenstown vineyard demonstrating the new Pellenc Leaf Remover.  This French machine is designed to pluck the leaves from the vines around the fruiting zone and expose the small berries to the sunlight optimising the ripening process.  This is a very labour intensive job done by hand!  The Pellenc machine does as good a job,  but much faster than by hand!  For more information contact either Duncan or Ian on 0064 6 873 0000.
