What is VitiNord?
VitiNord is the preeminent International Viticulture & Enology conference that happens every three years. Since 2006, VitiNord has taken place every three years, alternating between sites in Europe and North America.
Viticulture – the cultivation or culture of grapes especially for wine making.
Enology – the science and study of wine and wine making.
VitiNord brings together grape growers and winemakers from all the emerging wine regions in cold and cool climates–Scandinavia, the Baltics, Northern Europe, North America, China. We are connected by our desire to extend the grape and wine industry into norther climates as a way to stimulate the local economy
All of these people share the same challenges of growing grapes and making wine in cold and cool climates. They are connected by their desire to extend the grape and wine industry into northern climates as a way to stimulate the local economy.
VitiNord is a rare opportunity for growers and winemakers in cold and cool climates to meet each other and share ideas and solutions to the challenges of growing grapes in the North.
VitiNord is also the opportunity to take part in local and International wine tastings, innovative conferences with wine tasting sessions, vineyards and winery innovation tours.
Who should attend?
