A special workshop will be held at Waddell Vineyards near Ada on October 24. Registration for the event will begin at 8:30 and the presentations will commence at 9am. Featured speakers from Texas AgriLife Extension program include Dr. Justin Scheiner and Michael Cook.

Dr. Scheiner will be making a return appearance to share expertise on many applicable topics for our Oklahoma growers. He was a favorite presenter at a 2014 advanced training workshop. Michael Cook is located out of Denton, Texas and has been spending some quality time in some of our Oklahoma vineyards lately. He has provided consultations to vineyards that had requested site visits through an Oklahoma Grape Industries Council grant. The OGIC grant as well as the grant for this workshop was made possible through the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Viticulture & Enology Fund. 

Many of the topics will address challenges vineyards are encountering as observed by Michael Cook on his site visits. This will be an excellent learning opportunity and will benefit all grape growers. The workshop is free, but registration is required by Tuesday, October 17. Lunch will be catered so an accurate count of those planning to attend is necessary. 

Winemakers are invited to bring wines that they would like to receive feedback or help in determing faults. All samples will be confidential or blind testing

Location: Waddell Vineyards, 11533 County Road 3570, Ada, OK 74820
