Reflecting tape in our highest vineyards

After a dry summer, the ripening of the juicy grapes attracts birds and other animals in our vineyards, especially our highest vineyards located in isolated areas and higher up the mountain. In all these plots we are attaching reflecting tape in order to scare the animals away until right after the harvest where we take the tape away.

Last year we had good results with a lot less grapes lost as the grapes are eaten mostly by birds and not, what we thought, by rabbits or foxes. A bit of a strange sight as our vineyards look like a Christmas tree!
