Extension offers workshop
University of Idaho Extension is offering: Evaluating Your Landís (and Your) Suitability for Viticulture
The recently established Lewis-Clark Valley AVA (American Viticulture Area) provides exciting new opportunities for marketing wines produced from grapes grown within the AVA. If you have thought about getting into this emerging local industry, this workshop will help you determine if your property is suitable for successful wine-grape production. In addition, by touring the Colterís Creek vineyard and getting a brief overview of the work and monetary investment involved in viticulture, you will get a better idea if this is a business you want to pursue, even if your property is a suitable location.
Handouts, including a description and map of the AVA will be available.
After the tour and presentations, light refreshments and wine tasting will be available at the winery (included in registration fee).
