When: June 18, Tuesday
Time: 4-7pm

Join Randall Vos and Erin Norton at the Fireside Winery Vineyard for a summer evening event. We will review the pruning plots where Randall has been comparing cane pruning and different methods of spur pruning on ‘Brianna’ and ‘Marquette’. Randall and Erin will highlight some results from research projects they are working on and attendees will participate in sensory analysis on wines made from Frontenac Blanc from different levels of canopy management and harvest dates. The Fireside Winery staff will be available to discuss their approach to wine grape production and tour their vineyards. Supper will be included. Come out for a great evening of discussion and fellowship with other grape and wine industry members. We hope to see you there! Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 12 so we can get an accurate count for supper.
