2017 Ohio Grape and Wine Conference. Dublin, Ohio.

The Ohio Grape & Wine Conference (OGWC) will take place on February 20-21, 2017, at the Embassy Suites – Dublin/Columbus. The conference is jointly organized by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee (OGIC), Ohio State University Extension, Department of Horticulture and Crop Science Viticulture and Enology Programs at OSU-OARDC and the Ohio Wine Producers Association (OWPA). The 2017 conference consists of both general and concurrent sessions covering a wide range of interesting topics for grape growers and winemakers. We are pleased to announce our featured speakers in both enology and viticulture with Dr. Tim Martinson, Senior Extension Association, Statewide Viticulture Program, Cornell University; Dr. Debra Inglis, Director & Researcher, Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI), Brock University; and Peter Bell, Head Winemaker, Fox Run Vineyards, Penn Yan, New York. Monday morning will begin with a special half-day, combined workshop in both viticulture and enology. This workshop will focus on new innovative equipment technologies, techniques and practices utilizing the expertise of several of our trade show vendors. This should be very informative in keeping up with new trends in both viticulture and enology helping produce premium grape and wine quality. The conference continues Monday afternoon with excellent presentations in the general session from several of our featured speakers. Tuesday will consist of full-day concurrent sessions with technical presentations in both viticulture and enology.
