This sought-after speaker from the largest family-owned winery in the United States and one of the largest wine and spirit producers in the world will address the technical methods and materials used in wine processing to filter, clarify and purify wine to remove cloudiness, precipitation, undesirable odors and flavors. This presentation will also address the impact of harvest time and shed some light on how flavors are formed – during fermentation, aging and exposure to the barrel.
