Mitchell Vineyard Pruning class Spring 2020


We will set our pruning classes in April 2020 after our winter of 2019-2020.

Let's hope we do't have another winter of -30F.

Good luck with your vines this season!


Learn how to prune your grapevines so they produce a good crop of ripe grapes, perfect for wine, eating, or juice.  Bring your questions so you can get answers to your most pressing problems.

We will discuss when to prune, double pruning, determining the number of buds and canes to leave, what to look for and what to avoid, and the varieties you might want to plant.  We will also discuss basic problems you will encounter and what to do about them. 
We will look at Concord, Foch, LaCrescent, Marquette and Petite Pearl vines. 
To register for the class you can call Dave at 608-225-9210, or leave a message. The 2 classes can be quite different depending on the varieties we work with, and the course of the questions encountered. If undecided you can take the 1st class and decide then whether to take the second.
Attendees will do hands-on pruning, with a walk around the vineyard to see how different vines need different pruning techniques. Bring your own pruning shears if you have them.
