Webinar: Impact of Bushfire Smoke on Grapes and Wine
May 26, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree – $10
A Webinar focusing on the impact of bushfire smoke on grapes and wine by Prof Kerry Wilkinson, University of Adelaide.
Professor Kerry Wilkinson is a Professor of Oenology in the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine at the University of Adelaide – a role which enables her to combine her passion for both wine education and wine research. She teaches into the Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology and Master of Wine Business, and led the development of the award-winning, online Wine101x course. She leads a productive wine science research group and her primary research interests concern the flavour chemistry of grapes and wine: from management of ‘green’ characters in the vineyard and improved methods of oak maturation in the winery, to consumer preferences for different styles of sparkling wine. However, she is best known for her research into the impact of bushfire smoke on grapes and wine, having published approximately half the literature on smoke taint, to date.
