Phylloxera and Pierce's Disease an issue?

Recommended Posts

Thank you for joining us, Andrea. I work in the wine industry in Napa, California. The winery at which I work had to completely re-bud over all of its vines due to phylloxera and recently there has been much ado about the glassy winged sharpshooter.

In reading the industry news, we read a great deal about this little pest and yet I don't read about it from the European perspective very often, if at all.

What are some of the agricultural concerns that you have to deal with? Is the glassy winged sharpshooter an issue or is there another major concern that is uppermost in the minds of vineyard growers in Italy?

Thank you so much!
