What Science has Taught Winemakers
How 30 years of industry/university collaboration has changed winemaking practice
Speakers:Thomas Henick-Kling, Director, Viticulture & Enology , Wine Science Center, Washington State University, Richland WA and Peter Bell, winemaker, Fox Run Vineyards, Geneva NY
When: Wednesday, February 3, 3:00 Eastern Time
Topics to be covered: Since startup wineries emerged in the late ‘80s and ‘90s, informal winemaking techniques and winemaker training have given way to increasing science-driven technical sophistication and data-informed practices. Industry and University collaboration have played a big role in this transformation. Peter Bell (industry) and Thomas Henick-Kling (university) have both been instrumental in driving this evolution – and worked together in the Finger Lakes for several years. They will share their perspectives on how technical advances resulting from industry/university collaborations have shaped winemaking practices in the East and West.
Webinars are offered at no charge, but registration is required.
