Central Otago Pruning Competition

Is your Vineyard crew the best pruners in Central Otago? Sharpen your secateurs for this year’s Central Otago Pruning Competition being held at Coal Pit Vineyard next Friday, 6th September at 2.30pm.

Gary Crabbe’s saying it’s a ‘semi’ serious event, serious in the sense that you want to be the best CO pruners!


Date: Friday, 6th September

Time: 2.30pm

Venue: Coal Pit Vineyard, Rapid # 121 Coalpit Road, Gibbston

Snacks & beers kindly supplied by Gary Crabbe. BYO wine.

Cost: Each vineyard entered please could you bring along some additional wine as prizes.

Registrations to Gary Crabbe on or phone/text 0274 871947.

There will be both teams (3 people per team), and individual events. If there’s enough interest Gary’s considering an ‘Old farts’ electric category this year, otherwise all pruning by hand. Pruning 4 cane Sauv. blanc VSP, with the key being quality..not necessarily speed.

Get your teams together and head along for a fun afternoon at Coal Pit Vineyard next Friday.
