Sonoma County's pruning contest was moved to this Friday because of rain last week.

The Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation and the Sonoma County Winegrowers sponsor the event at SRJC's Shone Farm, located at 6225 Eastside Road, Forestville.

Check-in begins at 8 a.m. and the event starts at 8:30 a.m. This will be the 15th annual Sonoma County Regional Pruning Contests and County Pruning Championship. Regional AVAs will run heats to determine the top two winners to represent each AVA.

These winners go on to the championship the same day. Cash prizes and gifts are awarded to the winners.
