Munson Thomas Volney

From the beginning of the 1880s, the American botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913) was intensively engaged in researching vine diseases and determining the ideal soil for the various grape varieties. He established a vine nursery with numerous experimental plots in Denison, Texas, in order to carry out experiments on the different soils and numerous wild vines there, with the additional advantage of different climatic conditions for analyses. In the wake of the European phylloxera disaster, the French Ministry of Agriculture sent a delegation to the USA to find suitable rootstocks for grafting.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
