Since the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) and the California Association of Winegrape Growers (CAWG) joined forces to create the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium ten years ago, it has become the largest wine and grape show in the nation. And while we?re proud of the size of the Unified Symposium, it is the show?s established reputation for providing outstanding current and breaking news, information and research that we find most rewarding. As one of the industry?s premier gatherings, the Unified Symposium presents a vital platform to focus on the issues shaping our industry today, while interfacing the topics and trends shaping the future of grapegrowing and winemaking.
By combining a trade show with a broad spectrum of seminars, the Unified Symposium provides attendees direct access to all the latest information everything from the newest packaging ideas to the latest developments in the battle against vine mealybugs. The Symposium also provides an excellent forum for active networking between registrants and suppliers. Winemakers and grapegrowers have a chance not only to renew and make new friendships but also to actively discuss and debate information and ideas that directly influence their work and success.
The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium organizers have a long and distinguished history of providing vintners and growers with the information they need to remain competitive. Jointly organized by ASEV and CAWG, the show represents the collective experience, knowledge and background of the entire industry. The program of sessions addressing topics ranging from marketing and business to winemaking and grapegrowing is presented in cooperation with the American Vineyard Foundation; California State University, Fresno; Family Winemakers of California; University of California, Davis; California State University, Sonoma; California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and Wine America and Wine Institute.
