Remembering the early days of viticulture and wine research in Oregon: A conversation with Barney Watson and Steve Price
How two wine-loving researchers shaped the foundation of Oregon’s viticultural and winemaking research through decades of data collection, recording, and innovative wine trials. Steve Price’s research in the Department of Horticulture at OSU, met with the enology and winemaking experience of Barney Watson in the Department of Food Science and Technology, and became a mutual partnership that produced essential data for a burgeoning wine region. Join Steve Price and Barney Watson at Linfield College in a discussion moderated by Greg Jones as they recall personal stories and historical anecdotes that continue to shape wine research in Oregon and throughout the Pacific Northwest today.
