- This summer Dr. Nelson Shaulis, from Cornell University, was invited to visit Oregon as a consultant and lecturer. His visit was sponsored by the Sokol Foundation, Oregon State University, and the Oregon Wine Advisory Board. Dr. Shaulis visited 21 vineyards with Steve Price and myself in 8 viticulture areas during August 1986. He used these visits as a hands-on experience for about 250 Oregon winegrape growers. Individual problems and the process of problem solving in the vineyard were discussed in depth. On August 29th he gave a summary lecture on his impressions and commented about vineyard limitations in Oregon. The following paper is a discussion on procedures for problem-solving in Oregon vineyards from a portion of his lecture. However, I am including some excerpts from his lecture to give his comments about Oregon viticulture.
