B.E.V. NY 2015

It's time to register for B.E.V. NY 2015, which will be held February 26-28 at the R.I.T. Inn & Conference Center in Henrietta. In its 2014 inaugural, the symposium drew more than 500 attendees from New York and surrounding wine regions.

B.E.V. NY was born when the Finger Lakes Grape Program, the Cornell Enology Extension Lab, and members of Cornell's Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management and School of Hotel Management joined forces to provide a workshop covering all aspects of the grape and wine industry in New York.

The 2015 program features experts from academic institutions including Cornell, Penn State, Sonoma State, Finger Lakes Community College, and Tompkins County Community College, among others, covering topics from barrel sanitation and weed management to business planning and tasting room sales. 

We have also expanded the trade show this year to take place on both Friday and Saturday, February 27 & 28, giving attendees lots of time to speak with vendors about the products and services they have available to the industry. The traditional Wine & Cheese Social will take place in the Trade Show on Friday afternoon, after the end of the Enology program that day.
