Webinar with Abby Snyder (Cornell), Beth Chang (VT) and Anna Katharine Mansfield (Cornell) on COVID 19 and Winery Operations

Mark Hoffman, viticulturist for NCSU, sent me the following information this morning. There will be a pertinent webinar on responding to COVID in winery operations. The webinar will take place on Monday, May 18th from 12-1:30 PM, and is titled “Re”wine”ing the Clock in a Post-COVID World: ensuring personal safety & production efficiency as winery operations resume. I think the information will likely be of equal value to southeastern winery operations, so I would encourage you to check it out. Registration is required, and necessary information is in the PDF below.
