Please join the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology Extension Team, as they will be On the Road in Lodi on Thursday, March 9, 2023. “On The Road” programs organized by Dr. Karen Block are educational seminars that help University of California scientists communicate with the California grape and wine industries by bringing faculty to different regions of California. The On The Road Team will present relevant research from UC Davis and, at the same time, listen to the issues that are important to grape-growing and winemaking professionals.
