Come learn the history, techniques and tools of dry farming grapes in Sonoma County. Join long-time dry farmer Paul Bernier demonstrating these techniques that produce excellent wine—and command long-term contracts and premium prices—while promoting environmental stewardship by conserving water and energy. The workshop will be held at a vineyard that Paul planted 16 years ago and has dry farmed ever since.
Workshop begins at 10 AM and will be followed by lunch at 12:30 PM.
Additional speakers include Dave Runsten, CAFF Policy Director, who will talk about CAFF’s ten years of promoting dry farming and what we have learned and Glenn McGourty, viticulture and plant science adviser for UCCE-Mendocino County, who will talk about his team’s on-going research of climate-smart practices in vineyards.
WHEN: May 16th, 10 AM
WHERE: 1101 Canyon Rd. Geyserville, Sonoma County
