Wine chemistry textbook – now released!

Gavin Sacks has recently published a new textbook, Understanding Wine Chemistry, in collaboration with Andrew Waterhouse (UC Davis) and David Jeffery (University of Adelaide). Much of the content was inspired by material from Gavin’s class on wine and grape flavor chemistry at Cornell (VIEN 4400). The publisher, Wiley, was kind enough to sponsor a book release event at the 2016 American Chemical Society – AGFD Division chair’s reception.

See here for a link to the Google Book version preview: https://books.google.com/books?isbn=1118730712

The book can be purchased here: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1118627806.html

Patricia Howe has two publications accepted to Am J En Vit

Pat has two articles in press for the August issue of AJEV,

one with Jussara Coelho (visiting scientist) on headspace SO2 measurements, http://www.ajevonline.org/content/early/2015/04/15/ajev.2015.14125.abstract

and the other with Sue Ebeler (UC Davis) evaluating interlaboratory proficiency in common wine analyses. http://www.ajevonline.org/content/early/2015/04/15/ajev.2015.14119.abstract

And, her thesis was approved by her PhD committee, so she’s on track to graduate in May. Not to mention an abstract accepted to the 2015 ASEV conference on why standard SO2 measurements don’t predict wine stability very well. Congratulations Pat!
