Nothing to Wine About – Uncorking the Opportunities for Innovation in Viticulture

 Registration is closed for this event

The transformation of plant products into alcohol is one of the oldest industries which is both art and a science. But technology is helping change the way vineyards and orchards are managed, using state-of-the-art technologies and decision-making solutions. Here, we’ll be discussing the opportunities and entry points for tech to continue to support the growing viticulture industry and showcasing some of the current solutions and market opportunities. And maybe a sample or two...
