from Peter Salamone, PhD CEO of The ROC
When I first came to the wine industry from biotech 15 years ago, I was attracted to the complexity found in wine and the unanswered questions surrounding unlocking that potential. Today, the pursuit of understanding wine complexity and how viticultural and enological practices can affect wine quality are at the heart of my endeavors in forming the ROC.
Bridging the gap between basic discovery and the application of principles is what the ROC is all about.
From implementation of new tools and practices to simply creating a contextual understanding of the molecular consequences of physical changes in the winemaking process, the ROC is providing winemakers a much-needed link between Research & Discovery and Application & Development.
