    Seeking feedback from member/ growers and their understanding of the importance of hand tool sterilization . Do you currently sterilize your pruning tools such as by-pass snips or loppers between cuts on individual plants or between distinct vines on trellises? How do you currently sterilize your hand tools if at all? Would you actively be willing to sterilize more often if a system was available to enable easy sterilization in the field during pruning operations to combat the spread of fungal, bacterial or viral communities?

    Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Hello! I'm curious if anyone knows of a local (to Wisconsin) business where I can purchase treated vineyard end posts direct from the manufacturer?  I'm looking to source a flatbed full of them, so larger volumes shouldn't be an issue. 

    Thank you for sharing your suggestions!

    VINEYARD & WINERY INTERNSHIP SUMMARY

    Have you ever thought about exploring the world of winemaking and grape growing but don’t know where to start? Spirits of Norway Vineyard has created a new paid internship program aimed at helping you learn the ins and outs of the industry. From learning how a vineyard is managed to processing grapes and fermenting must and juice in to wine, you will gain experience across all levels of production.  Our experienced staff will guide you through the process from start to finish.  No prior experience is required for this role, but a passion for all things wine is a must!

    VINEYARD SUMMARY

    Under the supervision of the Vineyard Manager, the intern will learn all aspects of vineyard management, including but not limited to: Cultivation, leaf thinning, weed pulling, tying, suckering, canopy management, planting and replanting, irrigation of new plantings, installing insect control netting, ratcheting trellis wires, erosion control maintenance, crop harvesting and handling, search out and evaluate vineyard problems and make recommendations that provide effective, timely and economic solutions to deliver quality fruit.

    WINERY SUMMARY

    Under the supervision of the Wine Maker, the intern will assist with cellar operations as needed, including bottling, labeling, capsule shrinking, casing, palletizing, and warehouse management. An ideal candidate could advance to more of a Winery Assistant role, which would involve racking wine from one tank to another, filtering, fermentation, aging and wine finishing.

    COMPENSATION

    This is a full time, seasonal internship, May thru September, and on an event needed basis. The hourly rate of pay is $15.00 per hour not to exceed 40 hours per week. Start time is 7:30 am, punching out for a 30 minute lunch break, working until 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday. There will be some specific Saturday hours for installing insect netting and vineyard harvesting.

    Please submit your internship resume for consideration. Include three job references and a brief statement why you should be considered for this unique opportunity.
