Altmetric is now available on both AJEV and Catalyst online platforms.
Altmetric monitors online sources (e.g., social media sites,
newspapers, government documents) for mentions of scholarly
articles. With this service, if an article has been mentioned in
any of these different sources, it will receive an Altmetric
“badge” that reflects what these sources are and how many times
the article has been mentioned. It is then given an Altmetric
score that is based on this data. Altmetric provides a way for
authors to determine the impact and attention their articles
receive on a more granular level that is beyond the traditional
literature citation, and enables a measurement of the impact of
the individual articles, rather than that of just the entire
journal. The Altmetric data available for the journal articles
allows readers and authors to see the attention each article is
receiving in real-time and also allows for exploration of the
conversations surrounding the content.
Altmetric badges currently appear on the “Info and Metrics” tab
of articles that have an Altmetric score (located beneath the
Author Information heading). Clicking the badge will present
more detailed information regarding the score that appears in the
badge. Please see this
article for an example of an Altmetric badge.
First identified in 1930, Brettanomyces is not new but
only recently have we begun to understand the impact this yeast
has on winemaking. It’s long been viewed as a spoilage organism
in the wine industry and symposium organizers wanted to provide a
better understanding of what this organism is, its impact on wine
quality and how to control it through this one-day symposium that
includes a tasting.
In recent years, scientists have sequenced the genome, described
genetic and physiological diversity within the genus, identified
a range of metabolic products contributing to spoilage, and
explored how Brettanomyces interacts with different wine
environments and microorganisms.
The National Conference is a platform for technical information
exchange that is vital to the wine and grape industry. Running
the gamut of high-level scientific research to practical
application, the conference is evolving to meet the needs of
vineyard and winery employees at all levels. Organizers have
designed the programs to go deeper into the research and science
affecting the vineyards and wineries while keeping in mind its
application today or in the near future. The National Conference
provides an excellent forum for learning about the latest
research and meeting with colleagues from around the world.

On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law the Tax Cuts
and Jobs Act (Public Law 115-97 -“The Act”), which makes
extensive changes to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC),
including provisions related to alcohol that are administered by
the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). Those changes
were effective January 1, 2018.
TTB has updated their FAQs to include guidance on the transfer of
wine credits and what constitutes production. To read more about
The American Society for Enology and Viticulture and the
California Association of Winegrape Growers
concluded another successful Unified Wine & Grape Symposium
last January hosting the expansive 170,000 square foot tradeshow,
keynote luncheon with Gina Gallo and programs to address your
grapegrowing, winemaking, business and marketing
needs. Photos of the event can be viewed here.
Here at ASEV, volunteers are the heart of the organization and
essential to our success. Our board and committee members are all
volunteers. They continually use their voices to shape and
influence the wine and grape industry. We’d love to have you join
us. Click here to find out how you can
be a part of this community.
Access to decades of peer-reviewed research, discounted fees to
the Unified Symposium, the ASEV National Conference and other
ASEV sponsored professional development events, and videos
on-demand are just some of the membership benefits you can enjoy.
