ASEV Platform

Dr. Cheynier to Share Her Thirty Years of Wine Polyphenol Research

For many, Dr. Veronique Cheynier’s work on wine tannins and pigments has been the springboard for new research, earning her this year’s ASEV Honorary Research Lecturer. She will be sharing an overview of her 30 years of work in wine tannins and pigments at the 69th ASEV National Conference on June 20, 2018, in Monterey, California.

Dr. Cheynier is the director of research at the Institut National de Recherche Agronomique (INRA), working at the UMR Sciences Pour l’Oenologie (Joint Research Unit, Sciences for Enology) in Montpellier, France. She currently heads the Polyphenol Platform and has published more than 200 articles in international scientific journals, and written numerous book chapters and technical articles on various subjects related to the structure, analysis, reactivity and properties (especially color and astringency) of phenolic compounds in plants and foods. In addition, she’s the associate editor of the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture, Australian Journal of Grape & Wine Research and Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

“This is one of those rare opportunities to listen to one of the greats in the field of enology, and ASEV is proud to be able to bring world-renowned speakers and experts like Dr. Cheynier to share their knowledge at the conference,” said ASEV President and Washington State University Professor, Dr. Jim Harbertson.
