The German graduate biologist Andreas Jung (*1961) studied biology and ethnology at the Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg (Baden-Württemberg) with a focus on plant systematics, geobotany, plant physiology, limnology and ethnoecology. He completed his diploma thesis at the Institute of Viticulture in Freiburg on the plant food supply for predatory mites in viticulture. From 1998 to 2005, Jung was a research assistant at the Federal Institute for Breeding Research Institute for Grapevine Breeding Geilweilerhof in Siebeldingen in the Department of Genetic Resources - Genetic Resources - Grapevine. His work focused on the description, identification and characterisation of old grape varieties, redefinition of OIV characteristics, standardisation of microsatellite analysis (see molecular genetics) in the genetic characterisation of grape varieties, variety identification in old vineyards along the Badische Bergstrasse, and variety evaluation. He has practical experience in the field of grape varieties and viticulture.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
