Spring in the Vineyards at Butler Winery - Grapevine Establishment and Pruning
April 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$20.00
Have you ever wanted to plant a vineyard (or just a few vines) in your backyard? Then don't miss this opportunity to learn about growing grapes in the Indiana Uplands! Join owner Jim Butler and learn how - from site and varietal selection, to trellising, pruning theory, and weed/disease control. You'll even prune vines for some hands-on experience! Afterwards, enjoy a wine tasting of select varietals, and discuss the results of our winemakers' harvest season. Tickets are only $20 (plus tax), with a limit of 15 attendees.
Event will be held at Butler Winery & Vineyards, 6200 E. Robinson Road in Bloomington. Guests should dress appropriately for the weather, but we will offer a rain date for a torrential downpour. Gentle spring rain might be a go ahead.
