The University of Nebraska Viticulture Program and the Nebraska Winery and Grape Growers Association will host a field day June 6 starting at Cedar Valley Vineyards and ending at Deer Springs Winery, both near Lincoln.
The UNVP and NWGGA are collaborating to bring experienced and prospective grape growers a look at early summer vineyard tasks and special topics that will help producers to grow even better grapes for exceptional Nebraska wines.
The program will begin at Cedar Valley Vineyards, Jim Skinner’s vineyard at 1800 N. 176th Street, east of Lincoln. This free event will have registration and social time at 8:30 a.m. with the program starting at 9 a.m. Topics will include discussion of wines, trellis systems, crop estimation and adjustment, early summer vineyard tasks, under-vine stone mulch, drip irrigation installation and more. The event will continue a couple of miles away at Deer Springs Winery for lunch where participants can network with fellow Nebraska Grape and Wine enthusiasts.
