Slides from Presentation by Dr. Benjamin Bois, University of Burgundy

September 17, 2014

We were privileged to have Dr. Benjamin Bois, an associate professor in viticulture and climatology from the University of Burgundy, speak to about 40 growers and winemakers at Fox Run on Monday, September 8, 2014. Dr. Bois spoke about growing and producing Pinot noir in Burgundy, with a special emphasis on how climatic and site conditions ("terroir" in other words) can impact production and characteristics in the variety. He also included a few comparisons of the climate in the Finger Lakes relative to that in Burgundy.

We want to thank Dr. Alan Lakso for hosting Benjamin and bringing him to the Finger Lakes. We also want to thank Scott and Ruth Osborn at Fox Run for hosting the event.
