Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV)
It is widely recognized that winegrape vineyards exposed to fresh
wildfire smoke can result in quality losses and render crops
unsuitable for commercial wine production. However, too often
growers, winemakers and managers lack the knowledge and tools
needed to make timely, informed decisions about the status of
winegrapes exposed to smoke and how to prevent or mitigate damage
when smoke events occur. The lack of science-based information
and effective tools leads to uncertainty and the potential for
greater losses than should otherwise occur. This session will
identify key knowledge gaps challenging industry operators and
offer insights on how to manage through the uncertainty that
accompanies smoke events in wine country.
