Wonders of Soil and Wine - Wine Geology Q&A with Alex Maltman

Become a member of the Wine Scholar Guild & get access to all live & recorded member webinars.

Join geologist and author Alex Maltman as he addresses WSG member questions on such things as limestone, slate, volcanic and marl soils,  and how they may or may not impact vines and wine.

Presenter: Professor Alex Maltman

Alex Maltman is Emeritus Professor of Earth Sciences at Aberystwyth University, in Wales, U.K., with a long and decorated career in university teaching and research.

In addition, for over forty years Alex has grown vines and made wine, his scientific curiosity prompting questions about why things were done in certain ways and, inevitably, to the much- mentioned relationship between wine and vineyard geology.

This has led to numerous publications, in both the popular press and academic journals, and to international lectures.

Alex has advised on the geological content of a number of wine books, including the Oxford Companion to Wine and the forthcoming 8th edition of the World Atlas of Wine.

He is the author of the much acclaimed “Vineyards, Rocks and Soils, a Wine Lover’s Guide to Geology” (Oxford, 2018).
