Organic Vineyards Discover Juniper

By Tamra Rooney

Many vineyards are discovering juniper posts as an organic, chemical-free, long-lasting solution to support their vines.  

A to Z Wineworks, the largest wine producer in Oregon, recently switched out their old trellis posts and replaced them with new juniper posts at their vineyards. Many growers are swapping juniper for pressure-treated wood to reduce the chemical contamination of the soils while ensuring that the posts--and their investment in them--endure for many years.
