LOWER LAKE, Calif. – The winery team at Six Sigma Ranch invites you to a morning of excitement and camaraderie as it welcomes professional and amateur pruning contestants battling it out at the 10th annual Pruning and Pastries event on Saturday, March 3.

Six Sigma invites attendees to get to know some of the people behind Lake County’s award-winning wines, and to come brush up on techniques for pruning that backyard vineyard.

The two-hour event will begin at 10 a.m. just inside the Six Sigma Ranch gate on Spruce Grove Road.

First, the professional pruning competition will challenge Lake County top pruners, who will be judged based on speed and accuracy. The winners will be determined by professional judges.

After the professional competition, attendees are invited to participate in a hands-on demo of winter pruning techniques in preparation for the amateur pruning competition that follows. No pruning experience needed. Prizes will be awarded.

Coffee and tea will be served, together with pastries presented by Woodland Community College advanced baking class.

Bring your vineyard pruning questions and dress for the weather. Rain cancels the event.
