Wine Production in Southern Oregon: History, Current Status and Future Potential
with Greg Jones
Southern Oregon is one of the fast growing wine regions in Oregon with the number of vineyards, acreage, and production increasing over 50% in the last ten years. This talk will give an overview of the history, current status, and future potential of viticulture and wine production in the region.
Gregory V. Jones is the Director of the Division of Business, Communication and the Environment and a professor and research climatologist in Environmental Studies at Southern Oregon University. He specializes in the study of climate structure and suitability for viticulture, and how climate variability and change influence grapevine growth, wine production and quality. He conducts applied research for the grape and wine industry in Oregon and has given hundreds of international, national, and regional presentations on climate and wine-related research. He was named to Decanter Magazineís 2009 Power List representing the top 50 most influential people in the world of wine, named the Oregon Wine Pressís 2009 Wine Person of the Year, and has been in the top 100 most influential people in the US wine industry in 2012 and 2013 (intowine.com).
