Working from his North Texas base, Munson not only developed more than 300 new grape varieties suited for production in the Southern United States, but also gained worldwide acclaim for his winning fight against the deadly phyloxera epidemic of the late 19th century which almost wiped out the world?s grape production. His solution involved grafting vinifera onto certain native Texas rootstocks, and it earned him the Chevalier du Merite Agricole in the French Legion of Honor as well as numerous other accolades.
