VENSource Logo

VENSource – the U.C. Davis Viticulture & Enology Department’s System for outreach, research communication and extension – has a simple, but very critical mission: keeping you informed. Towards that goal, VENSource organizes and produces 8 to 10 day-long educational programs each year, hosted at UC Davis and targeted to wine industry professionals who want to maintain a technological edge in their careers by learning about about all the latest advances in applied research from UC Davis, national and international researchers, and experts in their respective fields.

Our seminars fall into three main categories:

WineFlavor 101 - Sensory evaluation of wine attributes and defects

Current Issues - In response to specific concerns in the wine industry today

Science Enabling Art - Merging science with the art of winemaking to produce the best product
