Consistent increases in wildfire events and their impact on the grape and wine industries are driving the need for better understanding of smoke taint chemistry. Knowing the difference between free and bound volatile compounds, becoming aware of baseline smoke taint tests, and learning and how smoke may—or may not—affect resulting wine quality are all key to making educated growing and winemaking decisions following fire events.
This webinar, led by international winemaker Nick Goldschmidt, includes expert scientists and winemakers who will speak to their research and experiences as well as address questions and concerns flooding the winemaking and grape growing communities.
