April 15, 2020 marked the 140th Anniversary of the founding of the Department of Viticulture and Enology. Unfortunately, as many of you know, we were unable to celebrate in person on April 24, 2020 as originally planned. We had previously scheduled a new date of December 9, 2020, however the decision has been made to postpone the event to May 4th, 2021. Due to the current uncertainty around when it will be safe to gather again, we hope that this date will allow more people to attend.
On April 24th, 2020, we held a virtual toast to mark the occasion of the anniversary.
