Growing Disease Resistant Vines (includes tasting)

Grapegrowing Breakout Session

With ever increasing resistance to crop protection chemistries and a general reduction in farming labor and economic resources, this session focuses on efforts to commercialize disease resistant vines.

An international panel will discuss the grapegrowing challenges abroad and the adoption of novel varieties to reduce the reliance on spraying and disease control. In addition to a wine tasting of some of these varieties, speakers will address plant availability and future directions in bringing these vines to commercial acceptance by grapegrowers, winemakers and wine consumers.
