On May 16, 2019, UC Davis V&E Extension presented a day-long program titled “Wine Management Strategies from Fermentation to Stabilization” at the UC Davis Conference Center.
Dr. Anita Oberholster’s research on the impact of smoke exposure on grape and wine composition started after the 2017 wildfires. After receiving several offers of grapes and having her own research grapes at the Oakville Experimental Station affected, the UC Davis Cooperative Extension Specialist quickly planned a new research study.
Dr. Block’s research group is currently working in several areas of wine research. His work in understanding and optimizing phenolic extraction in red wines (along with the Oberholster lab) has been especially productive over the last year and a half.
