VINTAGE REPORT

Connecting Terroir and Innovation

CONFÉRENCE DU MILLÉSIME
Bordeaux 2017

55 days left
Bordeaux
Pour la 7ème année consécutive, la Conférence du Millésime se tiendra à la célèbre Cité du Vin de Bordeaux. Le millésime 2017 aura marqué les esprits par sa climatologie imprévisible et atypique. Comment oublier la vague de gel fin avril qui a frappé une grande partie de la Nouvelle Aquitaine ?
Episode d’autant plus inattendu, qu’il fut précédé et suivi de températures anormalement élevées pour la saison. Enfin, après un été mitigé, plutôt chaud parsemé de pluies, le mois de septembre rompt la tendance chaude du millésime par ses influences automnales. Ces conditions météo en dents de scie remettent en cause nos pratiques viticoles et suscitent de nombreuses interrogations :
  • Gel et réchauffement climatique : un paradoxe?
  • Que pouvons-nous faire avant et après un épisode de gel?
  • Rendement, qualité, pérennité que savons-nous aujourd’hui de l’impact du gel sur nos vignobles?
Des intervenants de toute la France tenteront de répondre au mieux à ces questions en l’illustrant d’exemples concrets.

Data delivered from a shared perspective can change the course of how we manage and grow terroir driven wines. After our inaugural year in Sonoma County, we learned that there is a definitive need to build on this approach in the world’s most dynamic wine growing region. Coming back for the second year, the 2017 Sonoma Vintage Report aims to expand our understanding of terroir, and transform consensus that innovative technologies have the ability to reveal a vineyard site’s unique footprint. Come for discussions into this topic, a deep dive into the 2017 vintage, and the opportunity to connect and learn from a community of the region’s brightest minds in viticulture.

The Vintage Report stems from the need to encourage sustainable and efficient vineyard practices. We believe education will lead the way to inspiring new ideas and fostering better practices in the wine industry.

The Vintage Report provides a forum for industry leaders to dive into cutting-edge research and enhanced viticultural techniques to improve the practice of winemaking.

The event combines cutting-edge scientific results with empirical vineyard practice.

During the event vintners have the opportunity to reflect on the previous vintage, discuss major trends of the season and learn from others within the industry.

The Vintage Report has become a must-attend event for the most influential wineries in Bordeaux, Napa Valley, Narbonne and Paso Robles.

As the Vintage Report is dedicated to providing a dialogue for a higher level of innovation in the wine industry, many of the conference’ attendees are dedicated to adopting new technologies.

By sponsoring an individual event or a combination of conferences, your company or institution will gain the opportunity to connect with the industry's leading decision-makers. Furthermore, event sponsors gain exposure to all attendees through the event’s marketing and communications initiatives, and have the opportunity to attend the event.
