Winegrowing for Winemakers | Viticultura para enólogos
Part I: The Growing Season and Decision Making | La temporada de cultivo y la toma de decisiones
Part II: Fine-Tuning Vineyard Practices | Ajustando las prácticas del viñedo
Join us for an informative and engaging two-part session exploring winegrowing for winemakers. Moderator Dai Crisp, vineyard manager at Temperance Hill and co-founder of Lumos Wine Co., will lead attendees through the ins and outs of decision making in the vineyard. In the first half, OSU viticulture professor and extension specialist, Dr. Patty Skinkis, will review the principles and basics of vineyard management, covering routine actions in the vineyard and the data used to make decisions. Then, a diverse group of winemakers and viticulturists will discuss how to work together to fine-tune vineyard practices to achieve stylistic goals and production targets. These sessions endeavor to provide targeted, useful information across the spectrum of winemaking experience.
