Winemaking Technical Exhibits Tour
Space is limited to 25 attendees per tour. Registration for tours will be onsite only, located in the designated room from where tours will start, 30 minutes before each tour begins. Enrollment onsite is on a first-come, first-served basis. However, only two representatives per company may enroll in the same tour. Selecting a tour during the registration process does not guarantee enrollment. You must be one of the first 25 attendees to show up in the designated room on-site for each tour.
During this tour we will learn the most recent technologies applied on cooperage alternatives. Some of these include infrared scanning, the utilization of different shapes, technology to increase reproducibility, among others. Cooperage alternatives have been applied throughout the industry with great success, and application continues increasing. Each selected provider will explain their newest technologies and the impact on their oak alternatives.
