Over 200 wine industry professionals attended the conference featuring international research, trial tastings, product demos, and trade show
Healdsburg, CA, May 16, 2022 – Enoforum, Europe’s most popular technical conference for winemakers, had its U.S. debut on Wednesday, May 11, at the Sonoma County Event Center. The inaugural Enoforum USA welcomed over 200 wine industry professionals.
The conference was opened by event producers Gianni Trioli, founder of Vinidea and creator of Enoforum, and George Christie, President & CEO of Wine Industry Network. Following was a very intensive program demonstrating the results of recent R&D projects presented by industry suppliers, oenologists, viticulturists, researchers, and academicians worldwide. Six international research projects were also live-streamed during the conference.
Attendees also had the opportunity to attend trial tastings, product demonstrations, and a trade show that featured companies who showed off the latest innovations in winemaking and production.
“We are very happy to have been able to show American winemakers the full ENOFORUM formula, after last year’s experience when pandemic limitations forced us to switch to a virtual program, without tastings, demos, or exhibitors” declared Gianni Trioli, President of Vinidea, and creator of Enoforum. “The scientific level of the studies exposed at the conference was very high, and the live streaming mode – now familiar to everyone – allowed us to have in one day as many as fourteen speakers from overseas, and chosen among the most reputable European universities with a bottom-up approach,” Trioli added.
“We don’t have anything quite like Enoforum for our winemaking community in the United States, so we were thrilled to play a role in bringing the conference here. It was a great start to what we envision as just the beginning of establishing Enoforum USA as the premier technical conference for the U.S. wine industry” stated George Christie, President, and CEO of Wine Industry Network.
