VINEYARD OPERATIONS OF THE FUTURE

Presented by Andrew Walker, Viticulture and Extension Specialist

A modern vineyard operation requires several critical components to be successful: an accurate assessment of risk(s); knowledge and control of costs; frequent and frank communication with wine grape buyers; and an astute understanding of its place in the market.

WINERY OF THE FUTURE

Professor David Block

In the cellar, availability and cost of resources such as water and labor, worker safety, environmental regulation, and minimization and recycling of wastes are just a few of the issues with which the wine grape industry must contend.  In addition, automation and data management are tools that have the potential to revolutionize and improve wine processing at all scales, but successful implementation is not necessarily straightforward. This seminar focuses on strategic approaches to these concerns and problems.
