IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking for some advice/discussion about how to proceed.
I planted 7 different grape vines this spring with various results (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sangiovese, Tempranillo). I planted a little late (April/May) here in Richland, WA (Washington Wine Country) in my sandy (QuD), Alkaline soil. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m training these to a single cordon but only one of the vines made it to the top wire this first year (Chardonnay). The others had varying growth between 3-4 feet with the exception of the Tempranillo (planted latest Ã¢â‚¬â€œ late May Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and only grew up 12-18Ã¢â‚¬
