Considering planting a vineyard? Or, you have just recently done so? Then an upcoming one-day workshop near Keedysville may be for you.
This seminar is an overview of what is involved with getting a commercial vineyard started in Maryland, and is part one of a two-part series. The second workshop, to be offered next spring, will discuss the ins and outs of starting a winery.
Admission to the workshop has been reduced to $20 for Maryland residents, thanks to subsidies from the Maryland Wineries Association and Maryland Grape Growers Association via the Governor's Commission on Grapes and Wine. However, registration must be received by Oct. 16. If space allows, registration after that will cost $160.
The workshop will take place at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center near Keedysville from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
