MU Grape and Wine Symposium is Friday


The second annual Grape and Wine Symposium will be held in the Bond Life Sciences Center’s Monsanto Auditorium 12–4:30 p.m. Friday.

The event is free and open to the public. 

Featured are presentations by faculty in MU’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, and faculty at colleges and schools from other Missouri universities.

Several sessions will focus on disease and disease resistance in various grapevines. 

“Anyone who is interested in what researchers are doing and what will drive the grape and wine industry forward will find a nugget in the symposium that they will appreciate,” said Ingolf Gruen, interim director of MU’s Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology.
