DAVIS, CALIF., January 23, 2017…Drought, climate change and a
spate of Pacific Coast wildfires have heightened concerns about
the impact of smoke on winegrapes and wine. To address this
growing concern, the American Society for Enology and
Viticulture’s (ASEV) has reached out to international smoke taint
experts, researchers and scientists to discuss this challenge as
part of its National
Conference in Bellevue, Washington, this summer.
On August 26, 2016, the Society felt the loss of one of its most
influential members, Dr. Vernon L. Singleton. Spanning 34 years
at the University of California, Davis, his work in wine phenolic
chemistry has left a legacy that continues to shape the wine and
grape industry today. Please click

Speaking at an ASEV Symposium celebrating Dr. Singleton’s work in
2008, Dr. John H. Thorngate said, “It was an honor to have been a
student of Dr. Singleton and an even greater honor to have
moderated this Symposium in his honor. It is both exhilarating
and humbling to read these articles and realize the profound
impact that Dr. Singleton’s gifted intellect has had upon our
understanding of wine chemistry.”
