How do I keep squirrels and other pest off grape vines?

We have a small vineyard in California. In one area we use grape vines for landscaping. To keep the deer away, my husband hand sprays the leaves with a red pepper liquid concentrate that he mixes with water. I think it came from a feed store or farm supply. It doesn't hurt them, but they sure don't like it. It is really hard to make yourself as it clogs the sprayer.
I know that this may sound strange (and a little gross) but my Dad would sprinkle urine around he perimeter of the garden where his grape vines were. He didn't have any more pests getting to his grapes.
