Symposium unites research community to improve Missouri's grape and wine industries
From tales of bold undergraduates who siphoned wine from the basement of Mizzou’s original academic hall while curators met above, to exploring the genetic potential of Missouri’s wild grapes, the second annual Grape and Wine Symposium covered the rich history and recently rediscovered potential of the wine industry in Missouri. The College of Agriculture, Food […]
CAFNR's Colorful Wine History
Wine is back in Missouri. Vineyards plowed under during Prohibition are blooming again. The state’s wineries are winning international competitions. Viticulture, enology and winemaking are popular courses at the Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology at the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources at the University of Missouri. It’s all but forgotten that […]
Good wine and great ideas were shared at the first Grape and Wine Symposium at the Bond Life Sciences Center last Thursday. More than 120 people gathered to learn about Missouri's growing wine industry and the innovative research from the molecular genetics of grapevine disease resistance to the health benefits of grapes and wine. The event provided a forum for researchers to connect and explore collaborative projects.
From genetics to chemistry, economics and marketing to health, the science of grape and wine production offer myriad possibilities for collaborative research. The Missouri Grape and Wine Symposium on Dec. 8 is a unique opportunity for researchers across campus to connect and learn about the impactful research going on at CAFNR’s Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology (ICCVE).
Enhancing Missouri agriculture never tasted so good
Missourians use autumn as an excuse to revel in wine-filled times with good friends. While they celebrate, University of Missouri researchers work to improve vineyards and the fruits of their labor.
