Issues in Fermentation Mgmt: 2011


Thursday Aug 4th 2011


Freeborn Hall, UC Davis


Please join us for the Department of Viticulture & Enology and VENSource's first seminar devoted to issues and problems that commonly arise during fermentation of grape juice into wine. This day-long, comprehensive series of lectures by UC Davis faculty and staff was timed so that the information will still be fresh when crush begins for most wineries. Whether you just want a refresher on best methods or you want to hear the latest in successful fermentation strategies, this symposium is targeted to you. So bring your questions and/or concerns about Harvest 2011, and query the experts. We look forward to seeing you there. Details on registration follow the proposed agenda, below:
