The Role of Closures in Wine Flavor Management
by UCD Department of Viticulture & Enology

Date: Thursday, Dec 6, 2012
Where: Freeborn Hall, North Entrance to UC Davis Campus
Your closure choice decision is driven by many factors, most important of which is the impact on wine composition and flavor. This symposium is especially valuable because not only will you be able to hear all sides of the debate surrounding closures and wine flavor, from the natural cork industry, a leading synthetic cork supplier and producer, and a supplier of innovative screw caps; we have decided to expand the afternoon session and include an additional important aspect of closure choice - sustainability and carbon footprint. This topic has been bandied about in popular news venues, but what are the facts? This is a unique opportunity to have representatives of all 3 major closure types in one room. Bring your issues and questions about closures, and even examples of problems if you wish, for our experts.
These industry-targeted WineFlavor 101 classes are always very popular and often sell out before the event date, so we encourage you to get your registration in soon.
The newly revised agenda follows:
