More to Wine than Making it

There is more to know than making wine or drinking it, for that matter. On Friday, January 31, 2014 the American Society for Enology and Viticulture, the preeminent grape and wine professional society in the United States, hosted a symposium honoring Dr. Ann C. Noble, Emerita Professor and Sensory Scientist/Flavor Chemist from the Department of Viticulture and Enology, University of California, Davis.

Dr. Nobel invented the “Aroma Wheel” which is credited for a greater understanding of wine tasting and education. Peter Kitchak, of Kitchak Cellars, and I had the honor to be among some of her last students in the Wine Program at Davis before she retired.
