“It’s been a tough season in Paso Robles with many growers recording 20-30% less yield after severe cold damage. We employed the Vibrosoiler on 160 acres. The results were outstanding with a 9% increase in Chardonnay and a 20% increase in Syrah over last season. We will be using the Soilworks Vibrosoiler on the rest of our vineyard next season.” ~ Robert Woodland, Grower

“It’s a completely different vineyard in respect to overall vine health and balance as compared to last year.” ~ Napoleon Ruiz, Field Rep Courtside Cellars
