1, 2. There are 12 women who work in the vineyard undertaking all the tasks there. Each woman is responsible for 30,000 feet (vines) which corresponds to a parcel (approximately 30-34,000 vines). Each parcel has 45 rows and each row is 1,000m long. Thus, each woman who works in the vineyard walks 45km along the row, and 45km back, and works each row 11 times during the year. Each woman thus walks a minimum distance of almost 1,000km per annum. This is an enormous physical effort, quite apart from the work involved at each vine or post.
