Event description

Description

This lecture will discuss the different soil types and more specifically will focus on "glacial till". While the glaciers were melting they carved out some very unique soils that can influence the terrior (taste) of wines in Northern Michigan. pH requirements for Labrusca or Hybrid grapes vs Vinifera will be discussed also. Organic matter, cover crops, plowing, planting, fitting fields and fertilizing prior to planting will all be topics of discussion. Soil amendments and field preparation will be discussed as well as proximity to our lakes— with the question - it this necessary in site selection for a vineyard?
