Before planting grapes, soil should be as even as possible to ensure that the vines is even in terms of quality and ripening.
Hezwi hu vha hu tshi khou ambiwa u lima musi u saathu ṱavha tshithu. A zwi faneli u ṱanganiswa na u langa mavu zwine zwa itwa nga murahu ha musi zwimela zwo no ṱavhiwa. Muḓivhi wa zwa mavu anga ambiwa nae uri avhone fhethu hune ha khou ambiwa nga haho nahone arali huna zwinwe zwi sihoho mugwalani, hu fanela u wanala nḓila yo ḓoweleyaho. Hezwi zwi nga amba uri nga nnḓa ha u shumiswa fhethu hu hulwane, fhethu huvhili huṱuku ha muṱokola hu fanela u ṱavhiwa ho sedziwa mavu.

Tshiṅwe tsha zwithu zwine zwa tou vha zwa ndeme vhukuma kha musi u tshi khou lugisela mavu ndi u wana mavu uri muri u kone ubva u wa vhuḓi musi u tshi kaṋiwa. Zwa u vhidza vhaḓivhi nazwone ndi zwa ndeme uri vha ḓe vha ṱole. U ṱhogomelwa ndi zwa ndeme u itela uri hu vhe na u vhona mitwe ire kha mavu kana wa wana huna mavu a vumba, naho zwo ralo midzi ya miri ya kale i fanela u bviswa.
