HVWGA Grape School 2010

Steve Hoying of Cornell and Ed Miller of Brookview Station.

The Hudson Valley Wine and Grape Association held its regular grape school in Kingston last week. Many of the Cornell Extension folks are there to talk about canopy manegment, pest management, and the challenges of what it's like to grow grapes in the Hudson Valley. It's always very informative, and it's always a chance for the owners and winemakers to get together, and fraternize.
