2013-14 Current Issues: Best Practices for Vineyard Water Management Feb 20, 2014

 I admit that as a UC Davis alumnus, I am hardly an unbiased source, but VENSource and The Department of Viticulture & Enology have been putting together some fantastic seminars recently. Last week, I attended the "Current Issues: Best Practices for Vineyard Water Management" Symposium". WBM's very own Mark Greenspan was among the presenters. Other presenters included Larry Williams (UCD), Andrew McElrone (UCD), Lars Pierce (CSU Monterey Bay), Mark Battany (UCCE). In addition, there were two panel discussions; one consisting of winegrowers and one of winemakers to round out the day.

VENSource has put the presentations online here.

Handouts to accompany the presentations are in the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources (UCANR) document repository.

I found Mark Greenspan's presentation very interesting, but as a winemaker, I was naturally drawn to the winemaker panel-discussion moderated by Opus One winemaker Michael Silacci.
