So what the hell. All you folks just go to the grape store and buy your fruit? Can someone ask a real farmer for me?

What type are you looking for? Sensaphone, Davis Weather station (on cell signal or internet), Cable to the alarm in your bedroom? We have used all 3.

For you remotely, or for your guys who live on site?

Thanks Joe. One of my onsite guys is checking into the different types. My brother at Roederer has a Westech which used to be made in Santa Rosa but no longer is. He's willing to call me but his site is so much colder than mine I'm not wanting to get calls I don't need!

I prefer the davis as it will text or email. For any number of parameters.

Bill likes the westech and has 2. They have never messed up. One in bedroom to 37, wake up start coffee, one in living room set to 34, to go outside. Its less than 100 yards from coldest spot in vineyard to his house.

Not sure if this will be a help at all. My wife heard this on the radio yesterday (we've been to the winery).

"Henry of Pelham winery takes on weather with trial of new monitoring system"
