Brock University launched the Triggs International Premium Vinifera Lecture Series in 2004 to attract and showcase world leaders in the cultivation of premium vinifera grapes. This was made possible thanks to a generous donation by Don and Elaine Triggs to the University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute.
In 2011 the lecture series spread its outreach to include the grape and wine regions of both Ontario and British Columbia. The expanded lecture series has helped create an invaluable networking opportunity for the grape and wine industry across Canada. To help ensure that the event could be held in both provinces, BASF Canada, a company that provides crop protection products to the grape industry, stepped in to sponsor costs associate with making it a national event.
The series provides those interested or directly involved in the business of grape growing, viticulture and winemaking, as well as students and faculty, with access to the most current developments in viticulture.
