The Winemakers Research Exchange is a non-profit organization of Virginia winemakers pursuing quality improvement through practical experimentation in vineyards and wineries.
Experimental results are evaluated using appropriate chemical measures. Sensory sessions allow for blind tasting and group discussion of each project.
The Virginia Vineyards Association 2022 Technical Meeting & Trade Show was held May 12 and 13 in Charlottesville. Programming included updates from Virginai Tech, the Grape Breeding Program (ViRV) and panel tastings of Albariño and Tannat as well as a hands-on show and tell of new equipment. The WRE also presented an update on several projects from the past year. Slides for the WRE presentation are available below.
