Washington State University’s Viticulture and Enology department will host a two-day symposium on sustainable wine production, new technologies and climate resilience on May 9 and 10.

The event, entitled “Tomorrow’s Vintage,” will be held at WSU’s Tri-Cities campus and feature visiting speakers from Washington, California, Australia and New Zealand. Topics include drought adaptation, carbon capture in vineyard soils, wastewater management, pomace upcycling and sensor technology for sustainability. 

The symposium is part of the Ravenholt Lecture Series, which is supported by an endowment from Albert Ravenholt, a pioneer in the Washington wine industry and founder of Sagemoor Vineyards.
