One of Putah Creek Winery’s co-owners, Diego Barison, will be hosting a public book release author event with visiting Italian Agronomist, Simone Lavezzaro, on Friday, November 7th, 7 to 8:30pm, Avid Reader, 617 Second Street in Davis, CA.

Viten, a publishing house specializing in viticulture and enology, published two editions of a successful handbook of viticulture called “Vigna in Tasca” in 2007 and 2009.
In 2010, Viten collaborated with Diego Barison, a California grapevine nursery agronomist, to adapt this handbook and provide an extensive field guide in viticulture for the American market.
This pocket reference manual is rich in practical information. Unlike several other applied viticulture books, this handbook is easy to read and well organized. Each chapter starts with historical information and concludes with a complete glossary to translate technical terms.
The topics, prepared by experts, include world statistics, soils and climate, vine morphology, grape varieties and clones, pests and grapevine diseases. Graphics and illustrative figures help vine growers recognize the symptoms of each vine disease.
