“I’m thrilled with Lindsay’s sweep of the three major viticulture and enology scholarships,” says Justine Vanden Heuvel, assistant professor in the Department of Horticulture and Jordan’s advisor. “Her solid experience in the industry combined with her demonstrated strength in viticultural research made her the perfect candidate for these awards. It’s great to see that it’s not only the Graduate Field of Horticulture that’s wowed by her skills.”
Jordan’s research is examining the use annual cover crops in Finger Lakes vineyards to reduce vine vigor and improve Riesling wine quality.
