Business Management

Business ManagementWhile many might think that growing grapes and running a winery sounds like a perfect way to live, the fact is that these are businesses that require good information to make decisions about production practices, labor, marketing, and more. The Finger Lakes Grape Program works with experts from Cornell, Penn State, and the private and non-profit sectors to bring this kind of information to growers.
