Advances in chemistry help grape growers know when to harvest and vintners monitor the wine as it ferments, enabling them to make subtle changes. Join our expert Dr. Susan Ebeler, from UC Davis, as she discusses advances and innovations in the chemistry of wine.

From grape harvesting to fermentation, advanced chemical analysis is now used to discover what gives wine its taste, texture and aroma. Advances in chemistry help grape growers know when to harvest and vintners monitor the wine as it ferments, enabling them to make subtle changes.  Join our expert Dr. Susan Ebeler, from UC Davis, as she discusses advances and innovations in the chemistry of wine that will stimulate your brain and tantalize your palatte. Here's to better wine through chemistry!
