The spotted lanternfly has invaded Pennsylvania, but at the Wines, Vines & the Villain event, you can learn mitigation techniques and how to destroy their habitat while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine. The event will be offered on two Tuesdays: May 18 and June 22. The winery opens at 6 p.m., and the program begins at 6:30 p.m.
On May 18, guests will learn about honeybees and the effect of the spotted lanternfly on honey production in Chester County from experts at the Brandywine Bee Company. Meagan Doer, an expert from Penn State Extension, will teach techniques to stop the spread.
On June 22, winemaker Virginia Mitchell will talk about the potential of this invader to affect the wine industry, wine production, yields, and grapevines. A short tour of the vineyards will follow.
