Registration is open for the 2018 Oregon Wine Symposium, Feb. 20-21 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The Symposium comprises two full days of global wine industry experts sharing the latest advances in viticulture, enology and the business of wine, making it a must-attend event for everyone from winery and vineyard owners to sales managers, vineyard managers to marketers, winemakers to tasting room staff. It also features the Northwest’s biggest wine industry trade show with more than 170 exhibitors.
The 2018 Symposium curriculum will focus on “What’s Next for Oregon Wine.” Viticulture sessions will address timely topics such as vineyard labor and powdery mildew management, while enology sessions will delve into minimal intervention winemaking and exploring Chardonnay styles through their relationship with oxygen, among others.
