The UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology has provided as much useful information as possible about the potential risk of smoke impact, from recent events on the West Coast, to grape growers and winemakers. To that end, they are providing the following resources:
- The West Coast Smoke Exposure Task Force Grape Sampling protocol: WCSETF Grape Sampling Protocol
- The WCSETF Small-Scale Fermentation Protocol: WCSETF Small-Scale Fermentation Protocol
- A Video of Dr. Anita Oberholster (UC Cooperative Extension Specialist in Enology) processing 10 lbs. of grapes (~3.3L of juice) through the Small-Scale Fermentation Protocol, explaining the process step-by-step (How to do small-scale fermentations for the evaluation of grape smoke exposure risk).
- A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) sheet that will be updated on a regular basis: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) sheet
