Brock University is expanding its research winery to include state-of-the-art fermentation facilities, new instruments, and “the world’s first mediated reality blind consumer laboratory.” The $2.4M upgrade is being funded primarily by the provincial and federal governments. “Today’s announcement is certainly a strong statement about the world-class work that continues to be done by Debbie (Inglis) and CCOVI, as well as industry partners,” said Brock President Gervan Fearon. “Anyone who drives the back roads of the Niagara region quickly sees how important the grape and wine industry is to Ontario.”
