Altmetric is now available on both AJEV and Catalyst online platforms. Altmetric monitors online sources (e.g., social media sites, newspapers, government documents) for mentions of scholarly articles. With this service, if an article has been mentioned in any of these different sources, it will receive an Altmetric “badge” that reflects what these sources are and how many times the article has been mentioned. It is then given an Altmetric score that is based on this data. Altmetric provides a way for authors to determine the impact and attention their articles receive on a more granular level that is beyond the traditional literature citation, and enables a measurement of the impact of the individual articles, rather than that of just the entire journal. The Altmetric data available for the journal articles allows readers and authors to see the attention each article is receiving in real-time and also allows for exploration of the conversations surrounding the content.
Altmetric badges currently appear on the “Info and Metrics” tab of articles that have an Altmetric score (located beneath the Author Information heading). Clicking the badge will present more detailed information regarding the score that appears in the badge. Please see this article for an example of an Altmetric badge.
First identified in 1930, Brettanomyces is not new but only recently have we begun to understand the impact this yeast has on winemaking. It’s long been viewed as a spoilage organism in the wine industry and symposium organizers wanted to provide a better understanding of what this organism is, its impact on wine quality and how to control it through this one-day symposium that includes a tasting.
In recent years, scientists have sequenced the genome, described genetic and physiological diversity within the genus, identified a range of metabolic products contributing to spoilage, and explored how Brettanomyces interacts with different wine environments and microorganisms.
The National Conference is a platform for technical information exchange that is vital to the wine and grape industry. Running the gamut of high-level scientific research to practical application, the conference is evolving to meet the needs of vineyard and winery employees at all levels. Organizers have designed the programs to go deeper into the research and science affecting the vineyards and wineries while keeping in mind its application today or in the near future. The National Conference provides an excellent forum for learning about the latest research and meeting with colleagues from around the world.

On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Public Law 115-97 -“The Act”), which makes extensive changes to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC), including provisions related to alcohol that are administered by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). Those changes were effective January 1, 2018.
TTB has updated their FAQs to include guidance on the transfer of wine credits and what constitutes production. To read more about it, click here.
The American Society for Enology and Viticulture and the California Association of Winegrape Growers concluded another successful Unified Wine & Grape Symposium last January hosting the expansive 170,000 square foot tradeshow, keynote luncheon with Gina Gallo and programs to address your grapegrowing, winemaking, business and marketing needs. Photos of the event can be viewed here.
