Practical course for the identification of vine varieties

Short description:

The course is held at the Technical Center of the CRA-VIT Susegana (close to Conegliano, Treviso, Italy) and is divided into a theoretical part that provides the basis for the recognition of the variety in the field and a practical part in the "field catalog" of CRA-VIT, Ministerial Decree 8.2.2005, which houses over 400 varieties of Italian wine grapes and more than 80 varieties of table grapes. The main objective of the course is to develop the capacity of identification of main differences between vine varieties through direct confrontation. Proper and immediate identification of a variety on field insures minor costs in the technical and administrative management of the vineyard with reduction of expensive genetic analysis laboratory and their response times. The duration of the course is 1 to 5 days. The courses are held from late May to early July. see more information to the official site of CRA-VIT.
