Welcome to Episode 1029, a special #everybodyneedsabitofscienza! This is one of several episodes we like to sporadically add to the lineup. Today Stevie will be chatting to the Professore about his new book Vine & Prejudice (whilst tasting wines and eating copious amounts of pizza – ofcourse!) This episode also features Richard Hough, the translator of this book, giving his opinions on this new and essential piece of wine writing!
If you want to learn more about the Professore:
The one who checks all the facts and regulates when we mistakenly type “Verdicchio” in place of “Vermentino.” Attilio Scienza is a full professor at the University of Milan in the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences where he teaches courses on genetic improvements to the vine; he also teaches Viticulture in the Master’s program of the University of Turin in Asti. He has been the lead for many national research projects in the field of physiology, agricultural techniques, and vine genetics. As the author of over 350 publications on vine and viticulture in national and international journals, you can bet he knows his stuff!
