The symposium will investigate yeast’s impact on beer, wine and other fermented beverage flavors through topics like the effect of terroir, genetics, nutrient input, and funky co-fermentations with yeast interspecies and yeast hybrids on fermented beverage flavors. Welcoming the attendees is a Tuesday night reception and tasting. Bookend keynote presentations will provide a historical perspective on all yeast – where it’s been and where it’s going. The opening keynote presentation on Wednesday will cover industrial fermentation and aroma control while the closing keynote presentation on Friday will address how the yeast genome is being written. In addition to the keynotes, there will be several sessions and workshops as well as opportunities to taste wine, beer and cider in the context of yeast strain and the species’ impact on the production of fermentation secondary metabolites.

Thanks to the hard work of the ASEV Best Paper Awards
Committee, who voluntarily committed their time, they were
able to select one paper in the field of enology and one in the
field of viticulture, which they deemed outstanding in content
and provided a substantial contribution to the field. Each year,
the committee completes an evaluation of all research papers
published in the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture for
the prior year.
ASEV is one of the two co-organizers of the Unified Wine & Grape
Symposium, along with the California Association of Winegrape
Growers (CAWG). The Unified, held annually in Sacramento,
continues to bring the U.S. wine and grape industry together.
With informative sessions and nearly 700 exhibitors, it continues
to be the essential show to attend to stay abreast of the latest
information, insights and resources needed to remain competitive.
The January event showcased a keynote luncheon with
Lance Winters, Master Distiller at St. George Spirits;
sessions on how cannabis impacts the industry, a deeper look into
Rosé and vineyard pest diseases; and Technology Thursday, where
speakers looked at the impact and implementation of technology in
the vineyards, laboratories and wineries. These are just a
glimpse of what took place at the three-day event. Check out the
this year’s Unified Symposium.
Next year, the Unified Symposium is temporarily moving to
Cal Expo due to the Sacramento
Convention Center’s remodeling project, which will shut it down
for a full year. For more information about this temporary move,
