Comparing the Microbiomes of Grapes in Biodynamic vs. Sustainable Vineyards

Description

Over the course of one summer season we collected Pinot Nior grapes of Pommard, 115, and 777 varieties from six different vineyards across the Willamette Valley. Three of the vineyards were biodynamic and three vineyards were sustainable. We extracted and sequenced the DNA of the grapes from these two types of vineyards to see if the differing viticulture techniques had an effect on the microbiome of the grapes and eventually an effect on the characteristics of the wine.
