May Seminar In the Vineyard: Shoot Thinning & Fire Prevention

May 18, 2022

Shoot Thinning & Fire Prevention


Shoot thinning is one of the most critical steps in influencing vine balance and a well aerated canopy.  Please join us in the vineyard for a hands-on shoot thinning demonstration led by Octavio Garcia with Martinez Farming on May 18th.  Following the demonstration a Cal Fire representative will present fire prevention measures farmers should take to protect their ranches and those around them. 

The IGGPRA Board would like to thank Steve Cass and the Cass Winery team for allowing us to utilize their vineyard for our education.  If you haven’t yet visited Cass Winery, they pour incredible wines in their tasting room and offer lunch at the Cass Café.  If you plan to stay and taste wine or eat after the seminar please indicate so on your seminar registration so the winery and café can staff up accordingly.

Pre-registration for this seminar is required.  This event is free for members and $30 for non-members.
