Site visit to Meyer Farm Vineyard

Raul and Chen, the two undergraduate student interns who are working at the Mountain Grove Experiment Station this summer, went with me to visit Mr. Ken Meyer’s vineyard in Mount Vernon today. We all benefited from Raul’s experience in vineyard operations that he has learned from his father, the vineyard manager at St. James Winery, as well as his experience working at St. James. He and Chen demonstrated cluster thinning, proper shoot positioning, suckering and training of young grapevines for Mr. Myer,  Mr. Gould and Mr. Yoder as well as some of the crew.
