Grape grower training seminars

WILLSBORO — Home and commercial grape growing for wine is becoming increasingly popular in our region.

Cornell Cooperative Extension established a trial vineyard at Cornell’s research farm in Willsboro in 2005 with 300 vines of 25 hybrid cold hardy grape cultivars. This grape trial is intended to determine what type of grapes will survive in the area but the trial is also a hands-on learning experience. Throughout the season there are several seminars intended to help people to learn the necessary steps on how to manage a vineyard including pruning, canopy management, pest control and harvesting.

Anyone with a keen interest and willingness to learn through active helping is encouraged to contact Cornell Cooperative Extension Field Technician Lindsey Pashow at or call 518-561-7450 to be put on an email list for future learning opportunities.
