Wine Scientists Converge in California

September 2009
 
by Jim Gordon
 
 
Napa, Calif. -- Enologists and viticulturists from across North America seemed to revel in the new format and venue -- sans the traditional trade show -- for their most serious scientific gathering of the year as they met June 23-26 to discuss everything from rootstock to lab equipment. The 60th annual meeting of the American Society for Enology and Viticulture was the first ever to convene in Napa, and it attracted an estimated 800 registrants.

Canopy Management Symposium
On July 16 at the University of California, Davis, nearly 500 scientists and industry professionals attended "Recent Advances in Grapevine Canopy Management."
Dr. Nick Dokoozlian, viticulturist with E. & J. Gallo Winery, summed up directions and goals for the California wine industry:
• Simultaneous yield and quality improvement to help California maintain economic viability and stay competitive;
• Mechanize production systems to address vine balance and improve fruit and wine, while addressing labor costs and availability;
• Improve integration of production systems to combine vineyard design and canopy manipulation with irrigation and crop load;
• Improve objective measures for grape and wine quality, linked with sensory properties.
