Wine writer, Arthur Przebinda, and Arroyo Grande wine grower and wine maker, Dough Timewell, collaborated during the 2011 season to document key stages in the management of this canopy system. The project arose out of a need on Arthur's part to properly train and manage goblet vines in his home vineyard.

Four more videos, currently in post-production, ill focus on: Pruning, Shoot Thinning, Cane Training and Pre-harvest Netting.
