I was a little startled to learn that Dr. Linda Bisson is retiring, effective September 1, 2017. I guess time flies. Although I was still trying to finish my degree, I was already making wine when she joined the Viticulture and Enology faculty so I’ve only had the opportunity to attend Extension courses from her over the years. Though these, and professional organizations like the ASEV, where she has been the science editor of the AJEV for many years. Bisson’s research in yeast genetics is a scientific legacy that will not be surpassed easily.

As V&E Extension Director Kay Bogart reminded me when she informed of Dr. Bisson’s retirement, Bisson’s early contributions, “A few years ago she put most of the teaching material she used for the initial UCD Extension winemaking class on the UCD V&E website. Much of it can be found under Enology Resources here: There is a wealth of information there, as well as other data searchable through the wineserver website. There is also a collection of all the videos we posted from V&E Extension programs there.”
