Event

Growing Vines, Making Wine
According to the folks at Wines Northwest, "Pinot noir, Madeleine Angevine, Siegerrebe, and Chasselas  varieties thrive in the lush Puget Sound wine region, just as they do in the similar climate of the Loire Valley in France." While location is a big part of growing quality wine grapes, winemakers know that good wine begins with carefully tended vines and ends with a knowledgeable and inspired vintner.

Learn what is involved with developing your own vineyard and making a high quality wine when you join us Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for Growing Vines, Making Wine with Gary Moulton at The Vineyard at Lee Farms in Silvana, WA.

The workshop will cover what to consider when establishing a new vineyard including the practical aspects of vineyard development as well as an overview of grapevine growth and annual practices. Topics cover variety and rootstock selection, types of planting stock, soil testing, canopy management, trellis and irrigation decisions, as well as growing and harvest information. Finally, we'll cover all the winemaking production steps needed to take just-picked-fruit through to finished bottle.

Instructor Gary Moulton started in 1980 with the Fruit Horticulture department at the WSU Research Station in Mt. Vernon. In 1991, he took over management, direction, and leadership of the program. When the Western Washington tree fruit program was eliminated due to budget cuts, Gary continued his work as a private consultant and workshop speaker. He holds a Master's degree from WSU in Plant Pathology specializing in fruit diseases, and a Bachelor's degree in Pomology/Fruit Science from Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo. He has authored several WSU Extension publications, taught several workshops at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture, and has been a guest expert on "Gardening with Ed Hume."

As the only Western Washington American Viticultural Areas (AVA)  California has over 100  wines grown and bottled in the Puget Sound AVA have been winning national and regional awards for a number of years. The Vineyard at Lee Farms, established in 2004, has carefully tended plantings of Siegerrebe, Pinot 777, Pinot Precoce, Ortega, and Agria. The Vineyard's small size provides complete control over every aspect of winemaking from soil to bottle, allowing the Lee family to create small batches of lovingly handcrafted wines with minimal infrastructure.

Workshop fee includes a catered box lunch.  Directions to the vineyard will be provided with paid registration.
