Summer School Success
The first powdery mildew summer school has come and gone. It was a great success with many things learned and many friends made.
As well as gaining enlightenment on many aspects of the powdery mildews and sharing ideas with colleagues, we sampled wine from two different vineyards. This was interesting and a lot of fun. Of particualr interest to me was the Botrytis infected wine, which is particularly sweet, though not my favourite. This honour goes to the Muskotály, a wine made with the Muscat grape.
