A 16th century image of vineyard work for the month of March.

In keeping with the theme of vineyard workers, this image moves us from the 20th century back to the 16th century.  This image shows an estate during the month of March which, according to the description, is a time for fertilizing and training.  As such, in the left foreground are three men working in the small vineyard. Their work involves tending stakes and training the vines on a simple trellis.
