Winter Bud Hardiness ResultsWe are evaluating bud hardiness in Finger Lakes vineyards again this winter, along with our colleagues in the Hudson Valley and Lake Erie regions. Samples are collected from vineyards in all three regions every other week beginning in January, and every week from vineyards at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva. Results of these tests, along with daily high and low temperature readings from each site, are posted at the project's website, http://grapesandwine.cals.cornell.edu/extension/bud-hardiness-data/.
FLGP 2016 Enrollment Now OpenIt's time to enroll with the Finger Lakes Grape Program for the 2016 season!

We're looking forward to having you as part of our program in 2016!
Vineyard Mapping This WinterAs we enter the dormant season, one of the activities we will be starting up again is our GIS vineyard mapping project. Many of you have met with either Mike Colizzi or Bill Wilsey over the past several years to help us enter your vineyard information into our GIS map of Finger Lakes vineyards.
We appreciate your help with keeping this important resource as current as possible.
