Event description

Description

This two-day workshop includes lectures and field work that will focus on overall soil health and a balanced farm system, which can be achieved through the following areas: cover cropping, compost, biodiversity, and biodynamic field sprays. You’ll come away with practical information to incorporate one, or all, of these practices into your own vineyard.

The workshop will be led by Joseph Brinkley, Director of Vineyard Operations at Bonterra Organic Vineyards.

If you are registering for this workshop, please complete this short survey. Answering these questions will enable the speaker to offer custom vineyard consultations as well as facilitate an open dialog / Q&A session among all the growers during the second day of the event.

This event is sponsored by the Maryland Wineries Association & Old Westminster Winery, with support provided by the Governor's Commission on Maryland Wine and Grape Growing.

About the MD Wine Speaker Series. The series was established in 2016 by the Maryland Wineries Association to infuse world-class knowledge into the wine and grape industry by facilitating visits by renowned practitioners and researchers.

FAQs:

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

During this two-day workshop we will be traveling from the winery in Westminster, Maryland to a vineyard in Clarksburg, Maryland. You will need a car to get back and forth between the two sites. There is plenty of parking at both locations.

If I'm coming from out of town, where should I stay?

Mt. Airy, Maryland is the best mid-way location between Old Westminster Winery and the Burnt Hill Vineyard. There are lodging accomodations in the immediate area.

What should I bring with me for this event?

At the end of Day One we'll be hosting a wine social. Please bring some wine to share with the group! We'll provide some light appetizers and wine, also.

On Day Two we will be outside the entire day. Please bring appropriate clothing for the sun, heat, humidity, and being out in a field! Sunscreen and hats are advised. Bring your refillable water bottle, as we are trying to reduce the amount of plastic water bottles we use. Cold, fresh water will be available to fill your water bottle.
