Mavrik Debuting Smoke Taint Solutions in Oregon in May

Posted on April 28, 2021

Santa Rosa, CA  - Since formally announcing its updated approach to smoke taint removal a month ago, Mavrik has kept a busy schedule of trials in California’s North coast. 

In response to considerable demand, they take the show on the road to Oregon in May.

“Our crews routinely visit Oregon and Washington, but this will be a first look at our smoke taint solutions for many of our clients up there,” said Mariana Brown, Mavrik’s Winemaker and Operations Director.

While most were trying to devise ways to remove more flavors and aromas from affected wine in order to solve smoke taint, Mavrik was working to remove fewer flavors and aromas. Ultimately, a hybrid solution (treatment followed by a light fining) was chosen as the gentlest, most effective, and lowest cost solution.

Mavrik’s trial system quickly demonstrates these elements on one barrel or similar size volume.

Dates are still being determined, but trials will be available in Oregon in May.

Since 2007, Mavrik has offered wine elevating processes with at least one key improvement.
Low pressure VA removal and cellar temperature alcohol removal are only a few of the
highlights of those substantial advantages over alternative processes. With design, fabrication,
and services headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA Mavrik offers service, sales, and rental to the
worldwide alcoholic beverage industries
