Napa, Calif. -- Why were the Napa Valley Grapegrowers presenting an all-day symposium and trade show on Oct. 30 at Copia that included the topics of "How to Succeed in the Luxury Wine Market" and "Managing Red Wine Fermentation for Premium Production"? Those are winemaking and marketing matters, not farming topics.

Tondi Bolkan of Rubicon Estate spoke about using the new tannin assay.
 

"Today we have so many growers who have started making wine, and so many wineries that have added significant vineyard holdings," said Jennifer Kopp, the group's executive director. "We decided to start this program in the year between our viticulture fairs to give them a lot more information on the winery side."

The first-ever Napa Grape + Wine Expo included a trade show inside and out, and simultaneous programs running in two different Copia auditoriums. Programs in Spanish addressed "Pest & Disease Identification" and "Community Resources."
