You are invited to the farm this summer!

In an effort to foster a greater understanding of what agricultural practices occur in modern vineyards, John Wagner is inviting those interested in learning more about how Wagner’s is continually striving to be compatible with environmental concerns and remain profitable in these changing times, to the vineyard!

Those attending will leave from the parking lot of Wagner Vineyards and Estate Winery located at 9322 State Route 414 in Lodi promptly at 6pm. Participants will carpool from the Winery parking lot shortly after 6pm and return at approximately 7:30pm. Everyone is encouraged to wear appropriate shoes for walking on potentially uneven ground in the vineyard.

Tour participants will learn more about the 600 acre farm of which 220 acres are under management as vineyards, and approximately 150 acres producing hay. John will discuss the changes in management practices to conserve water and soil along with how and when pesticides are used to grow the grapes that produce their award winning wines. John will be joined by Hans Walter-Peterson, Viticulture Extension Specialist from CCE’s Finger Lakes Grape Program who specializes in vineyard nutrition, canopy management, and vineyard mechanization.
