June 17 Program – Best Vineyard Practices & Starting a Winery

Join us at the June 17, 2015 general meeting when guest speaker Phil Maddux talks about best vineyard practices and for starting a commercial winery.  If you’ve wanted to grow grapes or sell your wine, come listen to Phil talk about the joys and trials of both.

Phil has almost 45 years of winemaking experience.  He started out as a home winemaker and was active in SHW before deciding to go commercial.  Phil and his wife, Jill planted vineyards and then opened their winery, Lone Buffalo Vineyards, in south Auburn in 2007.  Their wines quickly grew in popularity and soon they grew out of space.  In 2013, Lone Buffalo Vineyards relocated to bigger digs on Wise Road in Auburn.  www.LoneBuffaloVineyards.com.

Phil is planning to bring a couple of Lone Buffalo Vineyards wines for tasting.  Please bring your own wine glass.
