Initiation date

Proposed is the establishment of a small-lot research wine making facility at PARC Summerland, and use of the facility to make wines from viticulture research projects underway. The facility will enable assessment of the wine making quality of fruit produced in response to viticultural research treatments, and relationships among fruit and wine composition and wine sensory characteristics. The facility could also potentially be used to assess wine sensory characteristics that result from site conditions (terroir effects). Establishment of the small-lot facility at PARC will also create a new training opportunity for students.
