ASEV Confirms Dr. Anna Katharine Mansfield as the 2023 Extension Distinction Award Recipient

ASEV has selected Dr. Anna Katharine Mansfield, associate professor of food science and associate director of Cornell AgriTech, Cornell University, New York, as the 2023 ASEV Extension Distinction Award recipient.

“I don’t think there are many extension enologists whose efforts compare to those of Anna Katharine’s in supporting the U.S. wine and grape industry,” says Keith Striegler, ASEV board president.

Anna Katharine focuses her efforts in helping regional wineries through enology extension and applied research on wine production processes. Her research interests include tannin extraction and retention in red wines, anthocyanin development, the effect of protein on sparkling wine foam, and defining regional identity in developing winegrowing areas.
