Congratulations to Dr. Susan Ebeler, who has been granted the Honorary Research Lecture this year at the 70th Annual National Conference of the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV)!
ASEV's website explains, "the honorary research lecturer is granted to an individual with a current national or international reputation in his or her field of research who is also actively involved in scientific research."
Under the hot summer sun of the San Joaquin Valley, just south of Merced, Miguel Guerrero of The Wine Group is trying a new high-wire act. In collaboration with University of California-Davis Cooperative Extension, Roduner Ranch vineyard manager Guerrero is experimenting with Cabernet Sauvignon vines and other varieties elevated by a single wire at 66 inches – plantings that are 2-3 feet higher than the traditional winegrape canopy.
