Growing vine is VERY EASY and and ANYBODY can do it!

 

Quebec is a “cold climate region”. Growing vines in such a region is therefore very specific and different from vine growing in areas with a milder climate.

During these courses Caroline Fontaine explains the peculiarities and specificities of the different grape varieties adapted to this type of climate, how to grow such cultivars and  have the best results!

  • 1 vine plant (Somerset)
  • 1 training book
  • 1 pen
  • 1 reusable bag “Vignes Chez Soi”

 

 

Free tasting session of juice and grape jelly and of course, of grape (when it’s the harvest season – end of August/September)
