Sustainably Managing Water Use

In today’s highly competitive wine market, Lake County growers are using the latest water management technology to maximize grape quality and to keep their operations sustainable.

“Our philosophy used to be: apply water until the grapes started to soften and we started to get color, and then we would more or less cut the water off and let them drift into harvest without irrigation. But we found over the years that it was better to not give them any water before color, reduce the berry size, and that would improve quality and get them under moderate water stress as soon as possible…” – Bryan Rahn, Coastal Viticultural Consultants
