Event description

Description

The Vintage Report aims to connect scientific understanding with the previous harvest. This is a unique event that gives vintners the opportunity to look back at the past vintage and learn from others in the industry. The topics discussed are deeply rooted in the region where it is held and the analysis delivered by the Vintage Report is driven by vine data that paints a picture of local terroir. Because of this, content delivered at the Vintage Report is essential for preparing for the following harvest. The Vintage Report stems from a willingness to encourage sustainable and efficient vineyard practices. We believe education will lead the way to inspire new ideas and fostering better practices in the wine industry. The conference combines scientific results with empirical knowledge and experience—connecting terroir and innovation.

In its 8th year, the Vintage Report will once again return to the Napa Valley to discuss the main highlights of the 2017 season. An exceptionally wet winter followed by the warmest temperatures on record has set the stage for extreme vine response and ripening conditions. The intensity of heat waves have shaped and sometimes slowed down the 2017 maturation profiles. The late-season wildfires gave a tragic end to an already challenging vintage. During the Vintage Report, we will take a scientific look at the 2017 season in Napa and observe its consequences on vineyard performance. We will review the effect of climate on plant development and discuss how this impacts vine and fruit physiology. A novel analysis of ripening dynamics will shed light on berry chemical changes and the effect of harvest timing on wine composition. We will also discuss implications of smoke-related issues as well as different color extraction techniques on wine composition. Come to meet other winemakers and winegrowers and discuss these topics at the 2017 Napa Vintage Report!

Please note, this event is open to winery and vineyard professionals including winemakers, assistant winemakers, viticulturists, vineyard managers and winery owners.
