New vineyard at VOM Children’s Center

A team of local volunteers has brought new life to part of the Valley of the Moon Children’s Center garden with the installation of 100 new Zinfandel vines. On Aug. 12, project leaders met with the boys and girls staying at the center to receive thank you notes and give the kids a lesson in taking care of the new vines. A crew from Larson Family Winery organized the project and replaced an old vineyard with vines donated by Novavine. Vineyard Industry Products of Windsor donated the 100 T-posts. Pictured from left are Sam Caselli, senior sales manager at Novavine; Becky Larson of Larson Family Winery; Isidro Corona, viticulturist at Larson Family Winery; Kathleen Hill, garden coordinator for the Valley of the Moon Children’s Center Auxiliary (the Cha-Chas); Meg Easter-Dawson, Valley of the Moon Children’s Center program development manager; and Erica Larson, a senior at Sonoma Valley High School and president of Sonoma Valley 4-H who coordinated the donations. The Zinfandel grapes should be established within three years, and mature in five to seven years. The goal is to eventually make wine to sell, with the proceeds going to the Children’s Center.
