Western Red Cedar Grape Stake Fencing

Because of the natural decay resistance in Western Red Cedar and its abundance, early vineyards used “grape stakes” to support their growing grape vines. Made from hand spitting pieces off of Western Red Cedar or Redwood blocks 4 to 6 foot in length, the stakes were used as posts between wires and held up exceptionally well to moisture, insects and other elements.

Due to changes in the way grapes are grown and harvested in today’s vineyards, other methods of supporting the grape vines are more commonly used. However, grape stakes are still manufactured in Western Red Cedar and are used as pickets for fences when a natural, rustic look is desired.

Hand split from blocks of Western Red Cedar, each piece is uniquely beautiful and averages between 1-1/2″ to 3-1/2″ wide and 6′ in length.  However, since our Cedar Grape Stakes are split per order, we can produce custom lengths and, in some cases, widths.

Nailed or screwed to horizontal rails of either Western Red Cedar or pressure treated materials, the result is a beautiful, extremely sturdy fence that gives an old world feel. Because of the natural preservatives in Western Red Cedar, we recommend using fasteners that are corrosion resistant, such as stainless steel or hot dipped galvanized to secure the grape stakes to the posts and/or supporting fence rails.

Your beautiful new Western Red Cedar Grape Stake Fence can be left to weather to a stunning grey or stained to maintain the natural, varied reddish-brown color Western Red Cedar is prized for.  We recommend using a good quality penetrating oil, such as Penofin Red Label, that contains UV protection, as well as mold and mildew inhibitors if you wish to keep the natural Cedar color.
