Winter Bud Hardiness Results

We 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,

Vineyard Mapping This Winter

As 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.

If you have made changes to your vineyards in the past couple of years, or you havenít ever had us map your vineyards, please contact us to make an appointment to help us keep these maps up to date. Contact Gillian Trimber at or 315-536-5134 to set up a time to do so.

Gillian will come out to your farm and look at aerial photos of your vineyard blocks with you to fill in whatever information you can provide about variety, rootstock, clone, year of planting, etc. We are happy to provide print outs of vineyard maps for growers who are enrolled in the Finger Lakes Grape Program.

We appreciate your help with keeping this important resource as current as possible.
