Photo from Unified Symposium
Although constantly in touch with this blog, I've been in Sacramento, CA to attend the annual Unified Wine & Grape Symposium - one of the largest (if not the largest) national trade shows for the wine industry. I thought it would be worth sharing to you, daily readers, in case anyone has interest in attending next year and dropping some money into the wine industry (any future home winemaker hobbiests?).
The show, which is attached in the above link, features vendors from all over the world that support the wine industry - everything from wine appreciation organizations to wine packaging to grape farming (yes there are some big tractors out there...) - and draws in a large crowd from the global wine industry. Each symposium also features several key seminars. This year's large features were on wine quality control, bio-dynamic grape growing, and Pinot Noir as a varietal. I can honestly say that Unified is a great success for all of us that attend - we meet new people, we visit with old friends, and we share some time together over a glass of wine.
