Overview of Grapevine Anatomy & Growth
Without understanding grapevine anatomy, you will not be able to properly prune, shoot position, or time your sprays. This module will teach you the unique aspects of how grapevines grow and how to time your vineyard management activities to the growth stage of your vines.
Vineyard Site Selection
Poor site selection can be costly and challenging to overcome. Learn the site factors that are crucial for a successful vineyard and how to properly evaluate your property.
Delays in critical vineyard activities can severely impact your vines and crop. This module details time-sensitive vineyard management activities and explores realistically the labor hours needed for a successful vineyard.
Crop Risks Factors
A pest, a disease, an errant spray mixture, or mother nature can ruin your season or even your whole vineyard. Be ahead of the game, and learn how to avoid, prevent, or mitigate the many environmental risks your young vineyard will face.
If not scaled properly to match equipment and labor costs, your vineyard may never be profitable. This module will break down the expenses for planting your vineyard, discuss how to scale for vineyard size, and empower you to build a budget to account for the unexpected.
Grapevine Variety Selection
Variety selection just like site selection can make or break your vineyard from the start. Learn how to choose a variety and rootstock suitable for your location and that will be marketable to local grape buyers.
Prospective Wine Grower Guide
Once you have finished the course, our Prospective Wine Grower Guide gives you a hands-on tool with all of the calculations and worksheets you need to determine site suitability, evaluate vineyard risks, and plan your vineyard economics and resources.
