Current Events in the Vineyard

The ' Research Vineyard' - This page will provide updates on the Long Island Horticultural Research and Extension Center vineyard in Riverhead, NY.  LIHREC is a Cornell University facility that houses both university staff as well as specialists from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County. We maintain a 2-acre vineyard at LIHREC which includes a variety trial and a smaller Chardonnay and Merlot vineyard used for experiments such as under-vine cover crops.

This Fescue was seeded last spring, it still needs a little more time to become established.
