With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. It’s time once again for winegrape growers and winemakers to register for the Washington State Wine Commission & Washington State University-sponsored WAVE seminars.

Yesterday, Research Program Manager Melissa Hansen told us about the initial shorter, WAVE-x seminars in coming up in Richland on March 15th and Lake Chelan on March 30th …

HANSEN … “And, then the full-day WAVE, kind of the full-meal, is April 4th and that will follow our traditional format. This will be our third full WAVE and it’s at the Clore Center.”

Hansen says Prosser event is packed with information …

HANSEN … “And, we feature six to seven research topics and they really go in depth. They have about 30 to 45 minutes to really get down to the nitty-gritty. And, it’s a blend of both viticulture and enology so there’s topics that both winemakers and wine growers are interested in.”

Hansen says space for the seminars is limited and approaching fast so be sure and go on line to sign up …

HANSEN … “Registration is needed in advance because we, number one, have to know head counts, but make sure we can fit everybody in the room. So, I would not delay because they do fill up.”

She says it’s a great opportunity for industry folks to network and meet the researchers who can answer your growing and winemaking questions …

HANSEN … “So, these have really become the signature event for research and it’s just a great partnership with the Wine Commission and Washington State University.”
