A History of Wine and Winemaking in California

Join us as we mark harvest season as well as Archives Month with a discussion by wine and food science bibliographer and librarian Axel Borg and archivist Jullianne Ballou, both of UC-Davis, on the history of wine and winemaking in California.

About Our Speakers
Axel Borg, a subject specialist librarian in the Research Support Services department at UC-Davis's Shields Library, has served as the Library's Post Harvest Subject Bibliographer for nearly three decades; he has also worked as a librarian at UC-Berkeley and UC-Santa Cruz. Along with Post Harvest Agriculture, his other subject specialties include viticulture and enology; food science and nutrition; general agriculture; microbiology; and plant sciences, plant biology, and plant pathology. He has curated research guides and written blog posts on these and related topics, and is the recipient of the UC Davis Academic Federation James H. Meyer Distinguished Achievement Award and the UC Davis faculty Charles P. Nash Prize.

Jullianne Ballou is the Warren Winiarski Wine Writer Collection Fellow at UC-Davis Shields Library's Special Collections department, providing access to the university's wine writer collections for research, teaching, and general exploration. She also supports the collection’s growth and reach through acquisitions, events, exhibitions, and digital collections. Prior to joining the library, she was a Project Librarian at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, where she worked with documents ranging from 16th-century maps to original drafts of Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude.
