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!
