Spacing of rows should be 12 feet apart and 300 to 500 feet in length. Allow 30 feet minimum at ends and breaks for equipment turn arounds.

Recommended trellis construction is the single wire system. Line post should be spaced 20 feet apart. Plant vines next to line post to reduce crop load to the trellis wire. Crop load is the total weight of the fruit, shoots and trunks that are supported by the structure. A trellis for a vineyard should support up to 7 lb/ft of fruiting wire.
