“We figure if you have 100 acres or more, it makes sense to sit down with your accountant and do the math, considering the purchase of a harvester. If you have less than 100 acres, you are better off getting a vineyard management company to mechanically harvest.”
-Al Wagner, Clos du Val Wine Company
