Postcard from Argentina: Old Vineyard, Cold Dog!

By

This is Mendel’s Perdriel vineyard planted in 1928, the source for their wine called Unus. Their vineyard manager Cristian was managing the wintertime tasks of pruning. His dog Peter was a new arrival.

The dog had lived in the city before and was feeling the cold at this 1000m vineyard, so Cristian adapted a pullover for him!

The nets are a protection against hail, which destroys 30% of the vineyards every year.
