Viti 101: An Introduction to Viticulture
Wine is a product of grapes, but it is just as much a product of the environment in which those grapes are grown. In this webinar, we will explore the important factors that ultimately influence what ends up in your glass, inclusive of climate, soil, vine propagation, planting decisions, farming practices and harvest considerations.
PLEASE NOTE: While this webinar is open to all Society members in good standing, it is especially geared for novice enthusiasts and newcomers to the wine industry and is highly recommended for Study Immersion Trip Participants.
