WAVE RESEARCH CONFERENCES

 

WAVE 

Washington Advancements in Viticulture and Enology (WAVE) has become the signature research event for Washington's wine industry. Co-sponsored by the Wine Commission and Washington State University, the annual research seminars are designed to bring viticulture and enology research results into the hands of users and raise awareness of the value of research amongst grape growers and winemakers.

WAVE, follows an all-day format to highlight both viticulture and enology research. WAVEx is a condensed version, but with more practical application. WAVEx allows the Wine Commission and WSU to tailor research programming for specific wine regions. WAVEx has visited the following regions: Walla Walla, Lake Chelan, Columbia Gorge and Woodinville.

RESEARCH SURVEY

We want your input! Viticulture and enology research in Washington State is driven by research priorities set annually by the Washington Research Advisory Committee, a subcommittee of the Washington State Wine Commission. Please share research topics important to you and help us learn about the industry's knowledge of research by completing this short survey. We ask that you forward it to the person on your staff (vineyard manager, winemaker, etc) that would utilize viticulture and enology research information.

The brief survey is available, here!
