Similarities in the climates of wine regions: Dr. Greg Jones and Etienne Neethling

Climate Learnings from Region to Region

Our first one-to-one Climate Talk will be a discussion between Greg Jones (Climatologist and CEO at Abacela) and Etienne Neethling (Head of the international master program in vine, wine, and terroir management at the Ecole SupĂ©rieure de L’Agriculture and an OIV expert within the ENVIRO group).
