Mark your calendars and plan to join us for two-and-a-half days of sharing new, exciting and relevant research in the areas of yeast aroma and flavor in fermented beverages. Notable speakers invited from around the world will share their knowledge about the impact of yeast on wine, beer, cider and distillate flavor and aroma.

If you missed the last National Conference, there’s really no way to recapture the camaraderie and the networking, but ASEV does have the video recording of the Brettanomyces Symposium, a summary of the research presentations in the technical abstracts booklet and an album of photos from the conference last June.
Each year, ASEV awards scholarships to students pursuing a degree in enology, viticulture or a curriculum emphasizing a science basic to the wine and grape industry. This year, 37 students throughout North America received a total of $107,500 to help support their academic pursuits and provide an introduction into the grape and wine industry. For a list of the 2018-2019 Scholarship recipients, click here.
Two students received the ASEV Presidents’ Award for Scholarship in Enology and Viticulture for which each student received $12,500 for exceeding the expectations of the traditional scholarship program and showing remarkable leadership potential. The enology award went to Jennifer Kelly of Brock University in Canada, and the viticulture award went to Andrej Svyantek of North Dakota State University, Fargo.
Here at ASEV, volunteers are the heart of the organization and essential to our success. Our board and committee members are all volunteers. They continually use their voices to shape and influence the wine and grape industry. We’d love to have you join us. Click here to find out how you can be part of this community.
