June 9, 2005 Guest Speaker: Ned Hill, President of Parmelee-Hill Vineyard, shared his significant experience in vineyard management as it relates to small vineyards.The company manages 350 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel grapes all in Sonoma Valley.Ned is the past President of the Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance.Mr. Ned Hill discussed the problems that vineyard owners are facing this year due to the excessive rains.Botrytis being the main problem in Chardonnay and Pinot because the clusters are more formed and canopies are full.He said it was the first time they have used helicopters to dry fields.Another problem is the weed growth as the ground has been so wet making it almost impossible to use equipment.The philosophy has been to let the weeds grow, as they will help absorb the ground water.Ned also discussed the controversy between growers and wineries as to the demand for longer hang times and the problems that creates for growers.
