Cornell University and the University of Vermont are bringing the 2016 Northeastern NY and Vermont Grape School to Lake George on Thursday, March 17th, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. The site of the conference is the Holiday Inn Lake George, 2223 Canada Street, Lake George NY.
Both college Grape Programs are offering a one-day educational program on Cold Climate Grapes for current or prospective grape growers and wine makers. The program will offer two concurrent tracks – one on Viticulture and one on Enology. If you are interested in growing grapes and making wine in our region, this is the workshop for you!
The Program also includes a panel discussion, Fostering Success in an Emerging Industry, led by Jim Trezise of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation. Our very own Gerry Barnhart will be on the panel along with other regional grape growers and winemakers, Jay White, Richard Lamoy, and Ethan Joseph.
