VESTAThe Viticulture and Enology Science and Technology Alliance (VESTA) curriculum retreat on June 1 in Niagara Falls brought together more than 40 top academics and administrators to work together to develop and refine the world’s best practices on subjectslike courses in viticulture, enology, and wine marketing.

It was a great group of people, all working hard to get us to the next level.  And it was great to see some old friends there, and enjoy what they brought to the meeting:  Ray Johnson of Sonoma State University, Patty Held from Missouri, Pat Howe from ETS Laboratories and Cornell University, John Giannini from Fresno State, Paul Gospodarczyk from Chicago…

And Michelle Norgren from VESTA itself…

Bright people.  And a great program.
