Dry farming winegrapes can have benefits in terms of water conservation and wine quality. Dry farming means more than simply not

irrigating. It is part of a larger vineyard management system that must consider factors such as climate, soil type, vine spacing, cover crops, variety, and wine style. This panel, made up of local growers and vintners  aims to address a wide range of questions related to dry

farming. The event is jointly sponsored by Community Alliance with Family Farmers, Amador County Winegrape Growers Association, Lodi Winegrape Commission, and California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. Please RSVP by April 9th to Kendal Lambert at

kendall@caff.org or (530) 756-8518 x13.
