News from last week’s American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) meeting in Portland, Ore., via Alan Lakso:

Cornell had five ASEV scholarship winners, the most of any university: Lindsay Jordan (Horticulture, Vanden Heuvel Lab), Amanda Sims (Horticulture, Lakso Lab), Paola Leonor Barba Burgos (Plant Breeding, Reisch Lab), Charles Frohman (Food Science and Technology, Mira Lab) and Melissa Aellen (undergraduate, Viticulture and Enology). (See Jordan sweeps 3 V&E awards.)

Vinay Pagay won the award for best student oral presentation in viticulture.

Martin Goffinet was a special invited speaker giving the first in a series of “master classes” for research and teaching. His review of grapevine anatomy, morphology and development was attended by more than 250 attendees who stayed for nearly three hours. A true “tour de force” that astounded many with the depth of Martin’s knowledge and the relevance to so many environmental and cultural issues in viticulture. Our students have been fortunate to have received this level of understanding in his section of the grapevine biology class.
