Woodinville, Wash. – Who said brettanomyces is boring? Dr. Charles G. Edwards and Dr. Thomas Henick-Kling of Washington State University Viticulture and Enology program proved the appeal of pesky microbes at their latest WAVEx wine research seminar on June 10, 2019 at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Theater in Woodinville.
“I was really excited to see this many people at the seminar,” says wine microbiologist Dr. Henick-Kling, Director and Professor of Enology at the Washington State University (WSU) Viticulture and Enology Program, “We just about filled our room here.”
Sponsored by the Washington State Wine Commission, Washington State University and Woodinville Wine Country, WAVEx provides an abbreviated version of WAVE (Washington Advancement in Viticulture and Enology), a popular Washington state wine industry research seminar. “It’s a way to bridge that gap that so often happens between academics and industry. We don’t always speak the same language,” says Melissa Hansen, Research Program Director for Washington State Wine Commission, “[The seminars] have been so successful, and have shown a real hunger, especially on the wine side, for data-driven, practical information.” READ MORE HERE.
