VITIS Mobile Winery Services is a small business that was started Fall 2012 in the Valley by recent Acadia graduate Thomas Grégoire. Funded by a provincial Productivity and Innovation voucher, Thomas and his friends are looking into ways to help maintain the current boom that's occurring in our wine industry, to solidify our international status as an emerging major wine region. Two main areas of ongoing research involve: the feasibility of constructing and operating a mobile wine bottling unit through collaboration with ACSBE; and an experimental grape cultivar trial using more natural, organic alternatives for soil amendments.
