Late last week, The Seminar Group hosted its 5th annual Best Practices for Owning & Operating a Winery conference, aimed to provide current information for those who want to work with the wine industry or buy, sell or own a winery.

Topics for the panels over the two-day program included land use and permitting, water supply and energy options, green programs, recent legislation, regulations, and court cases impacting the wine industry, developing a brand, trademark selection and protection, winery purchases, mergers, and acquisitions, and contract winemaking.

For those not able to attend the conference this year, the course materials as well as a DVD home study program are available online from the Seminar Group. The Group will also host a program titled “Owning and Operating an Urban Winery or Brewery” in November in San Diego.

More information is available on The Seminar Group Website.
