Download this Excel spreadsheet that helps you determine trellising components and quantities for your vineyard project. Simply fill in some initial values such as total vine count and number of rows and it will calculate necessary stakes, wire and associated components for vineyard installation. This is set up for a three-wire T-bar system, but can be custom-modified if you’d like. Also shows vineyard acreage based on vine count and spacing.
This Excel spreadsheet will help you estimate vineyard development costs. Simply enter a few values, such as number of rows and vines, along with row and vine spacing, and the spreadsheet will show you expected acreage of your vineyard and estimates of stake counts and fence length. Additionally, you will see cost estimates for all major portions of the vineyard project. You can customize the values if you choose. For example, if you intend to do some of the installation yourself, simply zero out the costs for those portions of the project. Provides an estimated total cost of your project. Obviously, current costs will vary, as will economies of scale. (“For amusement purposes only!”)
