Grape Day Research Event

Grape Day is our annual event highlighting research relevant to the Oregon wine industry. The goal is to provide industry members with an opportunity to network and discuss research with our researchers and invited speakers. There are five oral presentations, lunch, and an interactive poster session during the event. The information will be presented by members of the Oregon Wine Research Institute and guest speakers. The event is held on the beautiful Oregon State University campus in Corvallis, Oregon.
