Pruning Class with Director of Viticulture Preston Todd

  • 9677 Yucaipa Ridge Rd (map)

On Saturday, February 9th Director of Viticulture for the YVWA Preston Todd will be teaching a hands on class detailing how to properly prune a vineyard!

If you’re interested in growing and maintaining a vineyard, this is an essential class to take, as pruning is one of the most important aspects of vineyard maintenance. Good pruning technique can make or break a vineyard, influencing the health of the vines, the health of the fruit, and overall yields.

In this class you will:

+Prune actual vines in a commercial vineyard

+Learn proper pruning technique, and the different styles of pruning

+Learn how pruning affects your vines, fruit, and crop size

The class will be held outdoors in the vineyard, and we recommend wearing outside clothing appropriate for gardening. Bring boots, gloves, and if you have them, a small hand held set of pruning shears.

Tickets to the public are $65.

TICKETS FOR WINE ALLIANCE MEMBERS ARE $25. Check your email for discounted rates.

This class is FREE for professional members.
