Dr. Karl Storchmann’s lecture will draw on his expertise and research in wine economics, and his professional experience as a clinical professor of economics at New York University and editor of the Journal of Wine Economics.
Storchmann will discuss the impact of weather on grape grower profits in the European Union and risk/profit sharing along the supply chain, with a particular emphasis on the three-tier system in the U.S.
The Albert Ravenholt Lecture Series brings experts from the grape and wine industry to WSU to share their research and professional perspectives. The series is made possible through an endowment from the Albert R. Ravenholt Foundation. Ravenholt, an early pioneer in Washington’s wine industry, was founder of Sagemoor Vineyards.
