More than 800 wine industry leaders, researchers and other academic representatives from around the world gathered in Napa in June at the ASEV’s 60th annual meeting, putting research and science center stage among world famous wineries and vineyards.
“To mark our 60th Annual Meeting, we’ve made significant enhancements, not the least of which is hosting it in a world-class wine country where the research the Society fosters is being put into practice everyday,” said ASEV Executive Director Lyndie Boulton.
The Annual Meeting in Napa provided many firsts for ASEV, including successfully hosting a large event in the middle of a wine region. The 60th Annual Meeting provided 800 attendees with an exceptional and well-balanced program, offering a blend of the latest research reports, innovations and practical applications to its members.
