José Vouillamoz visiting The Royal Vineyards

Professor Vouillamoz is one of the world's leading authority on the origin and parentage of grape varieties through DNA profiling.

Swiss grape geneticist of international fame, trained with Prof. Carole Meredith at the University of California at Davis (USA), he is the co-author with the two Masters of Wine, Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding, of the multi-award winning book Wine Grapes (Allen Lane, 2012), the ultimate reference on all the grape varieties that are cultivated in the world.

Wine Grapes was the first book to introduce Tribidrag as the prime name for the Croatian variety better known as Zinfandel or Primitivo.

Dr Vouillamoz is also the author and co-author of several scientific papers and grape books, such as the Oxford Companion to Wine and the World Atlas of Wine. Dr Vouillamoz is an independent wine educator and lecturer, as well as a member of the Académie Internationale du Vin and of the Circle of Wine Writers
