Wine grape quality is directly linked to berry composition, which can be significantly determined by canopy microclimate. In California, extreme heat waves along with excessive solar radiation have jeopardized berry composition, causing yield loss and berry quality degradation.

To combat these detrimental events, growers can adjust their canopy management practices to maintain wine vineyard productivity and quality under the context of the warming climate.

Dr. Yu of CSU Fresno will talk about berry sunburn issues, trellis selection, canopy management practices as well as mechanization compatibility. A panel of growers including John Pierini and Zach Merkel of J. Lohr Vineyard & Wines will discuss their own canopy management techniques.
