Zoom- you will be emailed a link


What a year 2020! Joins us for presentations and a discussion about smoke exposure and the exploration of several potential remediation steps.  There are a lot of theories out there on how to fix it (mostly floated by folks who are trying to sell us stuff) so at this years trial showcase we will be examining wines with smoke exposure and sharing the results from trials that attempted to remediate the effects. See data from vineyard samples, post-enzymatic hydrolysis and post-treatment. We will also be discussing some experimental treatments that are just on the horizon.  It will be fun and informative!

Tasting- There will be samples to taste that will be before and after a variety of treatments. 


We will be hearing from two exciting speakers! 

Charlie Lybecker - Owner/Winemaker Cairdeas Winery

McKinley Dixon - Production Enologist Four Feathers Winery
