Laffort Applied Research Cooperative to Host Unified Seminar

Posted on January 05, 2017

Petaluma, CA – Laffort USA will present their Applied Research Cooperative (ARC) seminar at the Citizen Hotel on January 24, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. during the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium held in downtown Sacramento. ARC is Laffort’s innovative and collaborative program with leading wineries performing identical trials on one specific process or product, across multiple regions and varieties during a single harvest. Dr. Peter Salamone, Technical Manager of Laffort USA, will discuss completed and in-process ARC projects from the 2016 harvest. ARC provides verified production winery data on current and innovative winemaking processes.

Laffort USA, General Manager Shaun Richardson is committed to building on the strength of the Research and Development work of Laffort worldwide, and bringing this knowledge to real world winemaking. Shaun shares, “ARC by Laffort provides the ideal format for robust and valuable winemaking trials. Typically, wineries see results from only one data set during their own vintage trials, whereas the ARC protocols give multiple trial results, in the short space of one harvest.” If interested in attending, register at
