We had the honor of sponsoring the FFA pruning contest again this year. Our grower relations rep, John Moso, served as a judge for the event, which was held at Kautz Farms in Lodi. Several FFA chapters participated, with 50 students representing cities from Redding to Avenal. The contest included a written test followed by a timed pruning of bilateral, Quad, and cane pruning, and an oral presentation for each pruning style.
It was wonderful seeing the future of viticulture in action!

Good to see the sun again after weeks of gray skies and storms, but all that rain is bringing the green back and creating some breathtaking views.
Wishing you health, happiness, and success in the coming year!
From all of us at Casa Cristal!
