Visit two Winona County Minnesota grape growing operations to discuss "bud break," young shoots and other spring grape growing issues on Saturday, April 30, from 9:30 am to 4 pm.
In the morning, you will tour Bob and April Heiring's newly planted vineyard just off US Highway 61 North of Dakota. After the on-farm lunch, the afternoon tour will be at Harry and Jackie Hoch's diversified, Hoch Orchard and Gardens, on a ridge top above La Crescent. There, you will walk an older, organic vineyard.
Expert field guides are John Thull and Jenny Bradley, who care for the University of Minnesota's vineyard at the Horticultural Research Center.
There is a cost for the event. The class will be held rain or shine. Class is limited to the first 40 registrants. Registration began March 21 and ends when filled.
