The cultivation of vines has two advantages: Their roots grow deep into the soil and thus provide a natural protection against landslides, and the grapes are a healthy and nutricious food.

Lhakpa Doma Sherpa has started to introduce vine stocks in Hewa in 2015 when she brought first plants from Rebencenter Dreher in Auggen in Southwest Germany. More vine stocks have been introduced year by year, after the first plants proved to have grown well. Klaus Bender, the chairman of Verein Nepal-Inzlingen, has brought more plants whenever he visited the village; Rebencenter Dreher even donated some of these plants.

It is planned to extend the cultivation of vine stocks in the years to come, in Hewa as well as in the adjacent small hamlet of Siteling.
