Best Practices Session 1

Thursday, May 5, 2022

The weather conditions are improving, the pruning is almost done, the sap is moving through the grapevines and it’s the time for a new Best Practices session! Since 2019, GGANS, Perennia and many stakeholders are working together to provide local growers’ observations from the vineyards in our province. Like the last 2 years, the sessions will be held in Zoom, recorded and after uploaded to YouTube. Please, stay tuned as we’ll see the opportunity to continue evolving on how the sessions are delivered.

Our first speaker of the season will be Dr Harrison Wright, he will provide us with the main observations of the bud hardiness results of this past winter and the results of bud viability after the cool temperatures in January. Following, Jeff Franklin will update us with the last weather observations until now in the season. Closing our session, Steve Ells and Marcel Kolb will be discussing the activities happening in the vineyards and their observations.

This sessions agenda will be as follows:

  • Dr. Harrison Wright: Bud hardiness survey results and winter injury
  • Jeff Franklin: Weather update
  • Growers’ discussions: Steve Ells from Ellslea Farm and Marcel Kolb from Luckett Vineyards

The Best Practices session 1 will be next Thursday May 12 at 6:30 pm on Zoom. Registration is required, please see the following link:

Looking forward to meeting you at this session!
