People working in wine sector know that it cannot be done in isolation. Many projects are conducted in collaboration with researchers, and new ideas are frequently sparked by conversations with other professionals and with academic experts in field. Networking is particularly important if you're running a business and you need to develop a scientific project because it can connect you with academic experts in wine field, and help you overcome potential issues associated with being isolated. Moreover, finding a new opportunity of work is often helped by knowing people who have a position to fill, or who can point you to those who do. Networking is important for individual success, whether in academic research or professional career.

Science & Wine has now networking platform where you can discover new opportunities regarding wine sector, mainly related with science.

Screening of gushing-relevant fungi in Europe
Gushing is an excessive overfoaming of carbonated beverages - like sparkling wine - causing great financial and reputational losses to the industry. Studies on our chair revealed infections of certain fungi on grapes to be a possible cause of gushing. To determine the occurrence of gushing-relevant fungi in European vineyards, we want to perform a screening for a period of two years. Therefore, we need grape and corresponding soil samples from different regions in Europe which are taken shortly before the harvest 2019. We thought about testing two varieties of white grapes and two varieties of red grapes. If anyone is interested in being part of this screening, we would be very grateful to receive samples from you.
