Viticulture and enology researchers from multiple universities have been feverishly working with the western wine grape industry to learn more about how wildfire smoke impacts developing wine grapes. The hope is to develop some form of industry standard threshold for smoke taint, so that wine grapes will not be rejected at the winery unless they have truly been compromised. Watch this brief video with Miguel Pedroza from the Viticulture & Enology Dept. at Fresno State to find what they are learning about this issue. Read more about it in American Vineyard Magazine.
