Professor and Chair David Block returns from sabbatical

April 03, 2018

Department Chair Dr. David Block returned in January from a three-month sabbatical trip to Europe and South Africa. Along the way, he had the opportunity to connect with wonderful hosts! Some were old friends, some were alumni, and some were new friends that he made along his trip through Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and South Africa.

Dr. Block says, "Thanks to all. It was great to make new connections to wineries and research centers around the globe and to strengthen our connections."
