REGIONAL ROUND-UP:
LAKE COUNTY WINEGRAPE COMMISSION
ANNOUNCES SECOND YEAR OF PRUNING SCHOOL
The Lake County Winegrape Commission recently
announced the continuation of the Lake County Pruning
School, a very successful, sold-out program, that was
launched in December 2022.
The pruning school, designed to encourage one-onone
learning and engagement from participants, was
able to benefit more than 100 attendees in English and
Spanish during its first year. Class sizes are limited to 15
people to create an environment for participants to share
ideas and exchange techniques. The pruning school
is specifically designed for vineyard owners, vineyard
supervisors, crew leaders, and experienced vineyard
workers.
Lake County Pruning School is the first of its kind for a
regional organization and was created in collaboration
with Simonit & Sirch, the renowned grapevine pruning
school with more than 30 years of research and
experience. Vine Master Pruner Jacopo Miolo will
share knowledge about grapevine sap flow and teach
innovative pruning techniques to foster grapevine health,
longevity, and sustainability of the vineyard.
" We are thrilled with the success of the first edition
and look forward to enhancing next year's classes with
Simonit & Sirch, " said Debra Sommerfield, Lake County
Winegrape Commission President. " The delivery of
classes in both
English and Spanish
allows us to meet the
educational needs of
all vineyard workers
and we'll continue
with this approach for
the next edition. "
Four fundamental pruning principles that apply to all
grapevine training systems will be covered throughout
the class:
1. CONTROLLED BRANCHING - Drive the
development while respecting the vine's organic
growth.
2. VASCULAR FLOW - Separate desiccated areas of the
main vascular flow and ensure continuity of the sap
flow through the structure of the plant.
3. CUTS & CROWN BUDS - Reduce the surface area
of the exposed wound and lessen the risk of wood
disease.
4. PROTECTIVE SPARE WOOD - Prevent desiccation of
the vine.
Registration for the 2023-2024 Lake County Pruning
School will open soon, and spots can be reserved by
emailing the Lake County Winegrape Commission.
JULY 14 DEADLINE + CORRECTIONS TO
EMERGENCY RELIEF PROGRAM PHASE 2
The deadline for Phase Two of the Emergency Relief Program (ERP) has been extended and new corrections have been
made to more accurately reflect 2020 and 2021 natural disaster impacts on crops, including winegrapes.
The new deadline is July 14, 2023, which was previously set for June 2, 2023.
USDA announced they have updated the ERP Phase Two program to provide a method for valuing losses and
accessing program benefits to eligible producers, including winegrapes grown by the same producer for wine
production. These adjustments are intended to ensure that the assistance provided aligns more closely with the actual
damages and losses incurred due to these specific disasters.
The producer should use their grape production and the best resource of published prices to determine the value for
their benchmark year and disaster year. Published price resources could be RMA, NAP, NASS, crush district, or another
published price.
More information can be found in the USDA Press Release or ERP Phase 2 Website.
