Description

Our annual class is back! Our most popular course of the year. Learn the basics of caring for your own vineyard. In this course you will have the opportunity to take home vinifera cuttings of vines that are already aclimated to Oklahoma weather and have been growing strong for 18 years! We want more wine growers in Ok so wineries can be making real Oklahoma grown wine. You could be selling grapes to us! Participants are welcome to stay all day, and take home all the cuttings they choose. You will be given the information to have root stock growing by May!

This class will start indoors going over different grape varieties, types that grow well in our climate and the proper pruning technique for different varieties. Cane pruning vs spur pruning, long pruning, etc. What varieties to grow if you want to sell to local wineries, discussion on grape vine types, how to train your cordon onto your trellis and much more.

After a short break we will then have hands on instruction in the vineyard to learn proper technique and gather your cuttings to take home and propogate. We have over 7 varieties on site that you can choose from. Take 1 or 100 cuttings, you choose!

Our owner, Gene Clifton has been proving that Oklahoma is a great location to grow Vinifera grapes, which are preferred in the industry. These grapes are great for jams, jellys, juice, wine & more. He has many years of experience and has been a pioneer in the Oklahoma Grape growing industry, choosing local over all else. His son is the head wine maker at Trinatas Cellars in Napa Valley, Ca. so wine is a talent in this family! Our wines at Canadian River Winery are winning national awards at huge competitions every year (Texsom International, Fingerlakes NY International, Indy International & more. Many of these being best of class.)

After this course you are welcome to stay, ask questions and continue with as many cuttings as you would like. We will also notify you of our harvest class where you can return to learn he basics of picking & making real Oklahoma wine. Snacks or luch are recomended. We will have light breakfast & food platters available.
