A Tribute to One of ASEV’s Greats: Dr. Vernon Singleton

Dr. Vernon Singleton

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.

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.”
