Across the newsdesk this week was an announcement from Cornell University Cooperative Extension:
Hello all. we are happy to announce that Finger Lakes Grape Growers Conference and Trade Show has merged with Cornell’s annual Wine Industry Workshop to create a new event called B.E.V.

“B.E.V.” stands for Business, Enology and Viticulture, which are the subjects that the three-day event will focus on, with each day devoted to one of those topics. Viticulture will the topic of the day on Saturday, March 1, focusing on issues that are important to grape growers in the Finger Lakes. The Trade Show has always been an important part of the annual conference for growers, and we committed to keeping it so.
As many of you are aware, the trade show has sold out each of the past several years. We encourage you to register early to ensure space will be available.
