Beverly Tepper, a sensory scientist and Mark Pausch, a yeast molecular biologist
both from Rutgers University, together created Avventura LLC.
Mark Pausch sifts through the soil. The perfect soil for grapes is called a
‘sandy loam’. The vines should take in at least one inch of rain a week.
Mark shows off a graft union on a 101-14 root stalk.
The graft union protects the stalk against severe climate.
An existing pond behind the vineyard will provide the
water for the irrigation once the pump is installed.
Riesling is one of four white varieties that Beverly and Mark have planted
