Register for the 2014 Vintage Report in Napa!
Created in 2010 in the Napa Valley, the Vintage Report conference provides an unparalleled experience to discuss the latest innovations and scientific advances in viticulture and enology. By putting plant data in the forefront of the conversation, the Napa Valley conference aims at characterizing the specificities of the past vintage by looking at its impact on plant and fruit. Climatic and physiological data will be presented and discussed over a day with a community of vineyard managers, winemakers and scientists.
Take Control Over Wine Grape Quality
When it comes to a vineyard’s terroir, irrigation is one of the few factors that we can control and use to influence wine grape quality. How much and when to irrigate is the question, and precisely what we try to answer.
The objective of most irrigation strategies is to achieve an optimal level of vine stress that improves wine grape quality. Fruition Sciences has developed a revolutionary technology that “listens” to the vine’s water needs. It does this by measuring how much water the vine is transpiring (losing water) through its leaves via sap flow monitoring.
