2018 Sustainable Vineyard Practices - Part II Vine Physiology: From Flower to Fruit


Blue Note - 1030 Main Street, Napa


8:00am - 10:30am


Flowering and Fruit set are critically important periods during the annual lifecycle of the vine, when all are hoping for clear skies and perfect temperatures. But there is much more to the bloom period than simply watching the forecast in hopes of good weather.
