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.

Technology helps cut water usage in vineyards
FRUITION SCIENCES CONFERENCE TURNS SERIOUS EYE TOWARD THREAT FROM CURRENT DROUGHT
Bank of the West and Fruition Sciences recognized [on January 21st] the winner and two finalists of the Vintage Report Innovation Award Presented by Bank of the West for their demonstration of innovation and sustainability in viticulture.
A vine’s water-use can be measured just as accurately. Fruition Sciences [...] applies heat sensors to vine branches to measure how fast sap flows through them, and thus how much water is transpiring through the plant.
C’est au tout début du processus que se décide la qualité d’un cru
