About the Best Winery software

The Best Winery application was developed as an aid to wine producers, helping wine industry professionals track and manage their energy and water resources. Wine production is an increasingly significant component of Oregon's economy; consequently, the conservation of water and energy resources throughout such production is now receiving greater attention.

Best Winery is an extensive computer program written with Microsoft Excel™. It was originally developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and was targeted specifically to serve the California wine industry. Now the University of Oregon Solar Monitoring Laboratory has adapted it for Oregon's wine producers and made it available to download and use throughout the state.
