Dr. Andy Walker will visit the southeastern US in September!

Many of us had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Andy Walker and listening to him speak when he visited Georgia in January of 2018. Here is another opportunity to visit with Andy…

A wine grape conference is being hosted by the Alabama Winemakers and Grape Growers Association, Alabama Cooperative Extension, and Auburn University. The conference will feature Andy Walker and will be focused on his Pierce’s disease (PD) resistant European wine grapes that are nearing release. The conference will also feature a tour and demonstration of these PD resistant vines in the research vineyards located at the Chilton Research and Extension Center.

The conference will take place on September 13, 2019 in Jemison, AL.  For further agenda details and other featured speakers/topics, please see the flyer, below:
