In the Tales of Two Properties series, new wine vines were planted. But some did not survive their first year. This video shows the replanting process of a new wine vine to replace one that did not survive.

 

Of if you do not want to watch the video, below is a photo journal of the replanting.

To replant the vines, the supplies (such as a new vine plant) and tools used are shown below. If you plant your own vines, a shovel or post hole digger can substitute for the soil auger.
