The Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) just finished their annual VinCO Conference, which took place January 16-19 at the Grand Junction Convention Center. VinCO is the region's premier grape growing and winemaking conference and brings together top experts in enology, viticulture, and business and marketing. 

This year's conference brought together over 20 speakers from around the country to speak specifically to the wine and grape growing industry about topics ranging from tasting room best practices and marketing tips to wine chemistry and vineyard management. VinCO also featured panel discussions, educational wine tastings and over 25 seminars.

"This unique conference brings together winemakers and grape growers from all over the country. It gives attendees the opportunity to learn and collaborate towards improving and expanding Colorado's thriving wine industry," says Cassidee Shull, CAVE Executive Director.

The highlight of the conference are the Awards of Excellence, in which the CAVE members nominate the Grape Grower of the Year, Winery of the Year, and Friend of the Colorado Wine Industry.
