B.E.V. NY 2018 Marks the Fifth Year of Cornellís Masterclass for the New York Wine Industry

B.E.V. NY [Business. Enology. Viticulture.], Cornell Extensionís annual symposium for the grape and wine industry, will be held February 28-March 2 at the R.I.T. Conference Center in Henrietta. Now in its fifth year, B.E.V. NY provides regional industry members with cutting-edge research updates from experts in viticulture, enology, and the business of wine.

In 2018, all three days of B.E.V. NY will include sessions focused on the production and sales of sparkling wines, kicking off with a discussion of marketing and pertinent federal standards and regulations on Business day (Tuesday). Dr. Belinda Kemp, Senior Oenologist at Brock University, will share her experience in sparkling wine production in the UK and Canada with a world vs. NY technical session and tasting on Enology day (Thursday) and a discussion of grape growing for sparkling wine making on Viticulture day (Friday.)

Business day will also include social media marketing tips and a panel presentation by New York wineries who have recently re-designed their labels. On Enology Day, Extension Specialist Chris Gerling and microbiologist Dr. Randy Worobo will bring winemakers up to date on the new winery reporting and sanitation requirements for the Food Safety and Modernization Act. Viticulture day will also feature Dr. Imed Dami, professor of viticulture from Ohio State University, who will present his work on abscisic acid (ABA) applications and their effect on winter hardiness and fruit quality in eastern vineyards. A trade show of regional vendors will be held all three days, and featured students will once again introduce program speakers.
