When it comes to selecting a site and establishing a vineyard, there are many considerations. Environmental conditions influence vineyard design, and non-environmental factors, such as access to plentiful labor, greatly impact grape growing and winemaking. Furthermore, the product itself is affected, as wines have sensorial differences related to climatic conditions and regions of the world.
In this course, you will take a broad look at factors of site selection, including climate, with a much deeper dive into ground operations such as row orientation and plant spacing. Together, these concepts will be applied as you devise a realistic and productive vineyard development plan.
You are required to have completed the following courses or have equivalent experience before taking this course:
- Evaluating Wines
