|Subject||Wine and Wine Grape Research 2015|
Held on February 9, 2015 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.

Links to individual presentations are below. After clicking on a link, notice the 5 icons on the upper right of the screen. The first icon with inward arrows turns the screen into full screen; the second icon turns it into a picture in a picture; the third icon makes it into a side by side picture; the fourth icon makes a single picture of the slide or the presenter, the last icon swaps the slide and the presenter.
