Please mark your calendars and save the date for the UGA Extension Viticulture Team’s Sparkling Wine Production Conference.

This conference is possible through collaboration with our gracious hosts, Wolf Mountain Vineyards.

The conference will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM at Wolf Mountain Vineyards (180 Wolf Mountain Trail, Dahlonega, GA 30533).

The conference will focus on practical and applied sparkling wine production methods and will also feature a presentation on materials and equipment necessary for starting a small sparkling wine production program. A growers/producers panel will enable local industry experts to pour samples of their sparkling wines and share their knowledge gained from years of sparkling production experience. Speakers will be comprised of industry representatives from California and Georgia, and Extension Enology and Viticulture Specialists from the University of Kentucky and University of Georgia.

A full, detailed agenda and registration link will be sent out in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned.


Best of luck during the transition from dormancy to bud break.
