Dr Matthew Goddard will be talking about the diversity of fungi associated with vineyards and spontaneous ferments in NZ, describe their distributions and what drives the patterns we see. He will then link this to terroir and present the results from the world first test examining whether microbes may play a role in the sense of place of wines.
Dr Matthew Goddard gained his PhD from and conducted a post-doctoral fellowship at Imperial College in the UK; he joined the University of Auckland in 2004 and among other things, has worked closely with the NZ wine industry to understand the ecology of fungi associated with NZ vines and wines.
