Our goal is to provide quality information and tools for the viticulture industry in Washington State and the surrounding region. Growing grapes can be challenging in any environment, but Washington State is the perfect climate for wine.
Learn and gather information on what it takes to plan for, and establish, a new vineyard site. Find information on climate, soils, site preparation, and how to properly select plants.
Managing a vineyard can be as challenging as establishing one. Gather valuable information on trellising and training systems, general grape growing practices, and vineyard floor management.
The majority of grape production in Washington is located in the arid “East” where irrigation is an essential part of agriculture. This page has more information on general practices for irrigated agriculture.
Maintaining plant health is vital in the quality production of grapes. Learn more about disease and insect identification, physiological disorders, and general plant nutrition.
Viticulture is the business of producing grapes. Having a solid understanding of the economics and costs of producing grapes is vital for the sustainability of your business, and of the industry.
