Web Design and Development

The inspiration for the look, layout and functionality of the Finger Lakes Grape Program web site resulted from the creativity found at DSD Web Works. In addition, DSD Web Works custom built a complete user friendly content management system (CMS) which allows program staff to easily create and manipulate content. The administrative management back-end allows specialists to create informative abstracts or upload field trials, admins can upload information on new staff members, authorized personnel can add events to the events calendar or simply add an announcement. In addition, the backend helps to easily manage sponsors, event registrants and enrollees.

All content can be cross linked to multiple and relevant topics which allows for the site visitor to easily find relevant events and content.

The Finger Lakes Grape Program was released in June of 2012 and upon release the reviews were "glowing".

Announcements

Donald Caldwell Joins the FLGP

Iím very happy to announce that Donald Caldwell will be joining the Finger Lakes Grape Program later this month. Donís position will be similar to the one previously held by Gillian Trimber and Mike Colizzi, but will be more focused on our field trials and other projects, including the day to day operations at the Teaching & Demonstration Vineyard.

Don is not new to the industry, having worked in the vineyards at both Sawmill Creek and Glenora Farms in recent years. He is not a stranger to the Finger Lakes Grape Program either, having worked with us during the summer of 2016 on our invasive pest monitoring project, and he stayed on through harvest that year helping out with a few other projects as well. 

Donís first day with the Grape Program will be Thursday, February 15, so many of you will get the chance to meet him at B.E.V. NY, if you havenít met him already. Weíll be trying to get him around to meet many of you and to visit more of the regionís vineyards this winter and spring as the growing season gets underway. 

Welcome aboard Don!
