This workshop utilizes 100 actual soil tests taken from numerous wineries and vineyards from many wine-growing areas. All samples have been analyzed by using the Albrecht method; a specific system of soil testing that is used to establish the correct nutrient levels for use if winegrape production. The basic foundation for determining each nutrient required for achieving excellent soil fertility is provided as a specific formula. Each formula is explained by subject covered, and is included as a handout in participant's notebooks, along with copies of all the soil tests used for the course.
