THE MAIN HEADLINE ON THE COVER of this issue is “Work Smarter in 2016.” We don’t mean to imply that you weren’t working smart in 2015, but with all the substantive new research and newly applied practices out there, you’re not yet done with your education.

The coverage in this special issue includes two stalwart reports that we run every January: the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium preview story and the continent-wide vintage report that examines the quantity and quality of the recent harvest region by region.

It’s smart to get a good look at the best products and services available to the industry at the Unified Symposium’s vast trade show, and hear from the most well-informed speakers in the many content sessions. See managing editor Kate Lavin’s preview story. The symposium runs Jan. 26-28 in Sacramento, Calif.
