Session

Smoke Taint
Outreach Seminar

Location: Hyatt Regency Bellevue

Drought, climate change and a spate of Pacific Coast wildfires have heightened concerns about the impact of smoke on winegrapes and wine. Speakers at this Outreach Seminar will discuss when winegrapes are most susceptible to smoke taint, how it affects wines, varietal susceptibility, exposure levels and strategies to mitigate potential smoke taint. A tasting of smoke-tainted wines is included.
