The Old Way
Vineyards have gone through several evolutions in how they are planted. At first, the vines were planted willy-nilly, at incredibly high densities, and were only (could only) be worked by hand. Then as the use of horses became common in European agriculture, the vineyards were replanted in regular rows to allow them to be worked in just the same way as this picture from the Apalta Valley demonstrates. Some, like this gentleman, still choose to work vineyards this way, even as vineyards are now planted with spacing to allow tractors between the rows. -- Alder Yarrow
