Postmodern Winemaking Symposium


Clark’s critically acclaimed book from U.C. Press, Postmodern Winemaking, explored fresh perspectives on vine balance, living soil, ripeness, co-extraction, structure-building, aromatic integration, the seven functions of oak, microbial balance, reduction management and graceful longevity, clarifying the value of new oxygenation and membrane technologies.

The shift to a postmodern world view continuously evokes inquiries beyond those addressed in the book. The Postmodern Symposium was created to provide an ongoing forum in which winemakers can together address emerging issues with wines present.
