Vineyard Workshop: Site Evaluation and Establishment
May 16, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering several educational workshops this season to support the local vineyards in Essex and Clinton counties. Workshops are open to established vineyards and prospective growers who are part of the emerging cold climate grape industry in the north country.
This workshop will cover the basic considerations for selecting a site for a vineyard and how to establish a new planting. Jay and Sarah White of Boquet Valley Vineyard will describe their experiences selecting property, preparing land, and planning their vineyards. Following the discussion there will be a hands-on planting demonstration in Jay and Sarah’s new vineyard.
