"In early 2008 the Virginia Tech wine department organized a very successful Winery Sustainability and Design program covering many winery sustainability issues. Because of the success of this event and the importance of the subject, Dr. Bruce Zoecklein posted an Adobe Presenter version of this Online.
The subjects included in these audio and Power Point slide presentations are as follows:
Sustainability in Winery Design
Sustainable Winery Architecture
Why Solar, Why Now
Gravity Flow Design, Principles and Practices
Cellars, Caves and Earth-Sheltered Design
Winery Construction and Sustainable Building Materials
Each presentation is approximately 45 minutes long. Topics are discussed by some of the most respected winery architects, engineers, and winery planners from California and the Pacific Northwest.
This password-protected program is available for a donation of $45 to the Enology-Grape Chemistry Group at Virginia Tech. These funds will be used to support graduate student education. Check it out at: http://www.vtwines.info/ "
