At Cline Cellars in the Sonoma Valley, instead of pesticides and herbicides, 1500 sheep and 500 goats roam the vineyards, tasked with removing invasive weeds. In spring, they munch on new growth between the vine rows. During summer months, sheep clear the weeds from the vineyard floor while chomping on vine leaves, allowing more sunlight to stream into the canopy and ripen the grapes. Chemical free and some happy animals.
