Phylloxera In Napa Valley: Then and Now

An insect infestation born in America hitchhiked to Europe and nearly destroyed European vineyards in the 1800s. More than 100 years later, that same insect came devastatingly close to destroying the Napa wine industry before it even got off the ground.

This parasitic insect, phylloxera, had a monumental effect on the U.S. wine industry. In the latter half of the 20th century, it infiltrated Napa’s vineyards and changed how viticulturists in America’s most prominent wine region approach agriculture.

Koken is meer dan een recept.
