Inaugural Enoforum USA Showcased International Research and Innovation for American Winemakers

May 10th, 2021, Ponte dell’Olio, Italy – Vinidea and Wine Industry Network hosted the inaugural Enoforum USA Technical Conference on May 4th and 5th, 2021.

Enoforum USA showcased a wide variety of advancements and innovations that have been developed in recent years for the wine & grape industry. The conference featured 24 presentations, 17 from overseas researchers, sharing their knowledge and experience with an engaged audience of close to 1,400 registered attendees.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with how the conference went. The presenters were outstanding and having the opportunity to feature international researchers to our North American winemaking and viticultural community was incredible. We’re looking forward to doing it again, in person, next May” stated George Christie, President of Wine Industry Network.

“We were also very satisfied with the number of attendees and participatory attitude of North Americans wine industry stakeholders. Their interest in overseas research and the innovations on display, combining science and practice, was indisputable. The web environment has confirmed its great potential in knowledge transfer, and we’ll treasure this in 2022 when we complement the rich conference with tastings, demonstrations and matchmakings in the full in-presence Enoforum format” added Gianni Trioli, Founder and President of Vinidea.

Enoforum USA will return in-person in May 2022 in Santa Rosa, CA. For more information, or to receive updates on the next year’s event, along with rebroadcasts of 2021 sessions visit
