|Subject||Variety Focus: Grapes of Iberia|
Variety Focus: Grapes of Iberia was a UC Davis Extension course held on May 14, 2009 at UC Davis. The links below contain individual video presentations in an easy-to-use format. No additional software is required.
This was the fifth in a series, and focused on grape varieties from the Iberian Peninsula —modern-day Spain and Portugal. The speakers describe the origins of these varieties; their role in the regional wines; the challenging issues of their naming conventions and synonyms; their history in both Europe and the new world; the importance, development and selection of clones; and the role of terroir in the performance of the vines. Wine tastings and a reception were included. For information on other UC Davis Extension classes, visit http://extension.ucdavis.edu
Lecturers include UC Davis faculty, UC farm advisors, experienced California growers and winemakers, and guests from Oregon, Spain and Portugal. This program is intended to increase awareness of the potential of some of these unique varieties in new viticultural areas.
The Variety Focus: Grapes of Iberia seminar was videotaped in high quality by UC ANR Communication Services. These Adobe Presenter files do not require any special software to run, but please wait about 12 seconds after clicking a link for the video to begin. Controls for the slides are provided.
