|Subject||Wine and Wine Grape Research 2014|
Held on February 12, 2014 at UC Davis, this event showcased current viticulture and wine-related research projects as 20-minute talks by researchers. Wine and Wine Grape Research was offered by UC Davis Extension for the first time in 2009 and is anticipated to be offered annually as an opportunity for researchers, growers, winemakers, students, and others interested in cutting-edge projects. The format of short reports allows for synopses of many projects in a single day, all of which may be viewed through the links below.
The research was funded by grants from the American Vineyard Foundation, Viticulture Consortium West (VCW), and/or the California Competitive Grants Program for Research in Viticulture and Enology. It was co-sponsored by the American Vineyard Foundation and the National Grape and Wine Initiative.
