2013 Vintage Report
Understand the past vintage in Napa... and prepare for the next one!
Organized every year in Napa and Europe, the Vintage Report is a one-of-a-kind conference that aims at gathering vintners and scientists during a day to discuss the past vintage and share the latest technical advances.
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.

“It's not about seeking increased efficiency, but about maintaining levels of production and optimizing grape quality.”
“Now my vineyard team knows when and how much to irrigate the vines. That enables us to use less water, confirms Daniel Baron, technical director of Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars vineyards.”
Mr. Fernandez opted to try the Fruition Sciences data package with sap sensors after using pressure bombs to gauge transpiration for two decades.
