A grant project that I am part of is conducting webinars on grape and wine production. Even though the project is based in Northern states like Minnesota, New York, etc. There are great lessons to be learned for any grape growing region. This project (http://northerngrapesproject.org/) has a lot of fine people involved with it. In my mind it is a great model project for other developing wine regions. The Gulf South states could learn a lot from the outcomes of this project over the next 5 years.
The webinars are online here (http://northerngrapesproject.org/?page_id=257) and can be watched for free! A great educational opportunity for both grape growers and wine makers.
