Just as at Mel Goldman's Keuka Lake Vineyards, Paul and Shannon Brock are taking it step by step with their Silver Thread Vineyards. Among the little steps they've taken in the vineyard are the installation of some drain tile (perforated plastic pipe) to help some spots of the vineyard that were not draining well, and replacing vines in those areas to get the density of plantings back up. There's also a spanking-new shed and a nice gleaming row of solar panels to power the winery, as the Brocks are emphasizing sustainability.
