The Small Vineyard Series is a quarterly series of one-day classes designed for home and small-commercial winegrowers. Classes cover both basic principles of viticulture and practical aspects of small vineyard management, and may be taken in any order. Presentations are designed for growers with little or no experience in grape growing.
This is the first of two classes focusing on vineyard management practices. It covers many of the vineyard activities occurring during the winter and spring months, including planting new vineyards, training young vines and principles and practices of pruning. Also included are discussions on frost protection, weed control and vineyard floor management options.
