For the 6th year in the beautiful Napa Valley, the Vintage Report Conference returned to bring the most innovative and scientific minds together to discuss the most recent vintage. With local plant data at the focal point of discussion, the Vintage Report Conference aimed at dissecting and explaining the past vintage by looking at the impact on plant and fruit. Presentations on climatic and physiological data throughout the day facilitated discussion among this incredible community of vineyard managers, winemakers, and scientists. Through this conference we created a unique experience for all by showcasing the incredible innovation and scientific discovery in the fields of viticulture and enology.
