Something you don’t see everyday in wine country

As we were driving around the valley this weekend we came across something that made us pull over and stop–there was a herd of sheep grazing in the vineyards. Apparently this is an effective way to rid a vineyard of unwanted weeds that may be popping up between the vines after a wet winter. We’re also told that as the sheep graze and leave behind their droppings, it makes for an excellent source of maneur. Who knew?!

It’s somewhat difficult to make them out in the photo below, but trust us, it was a sight to be seen!
