The Berry Sensory Analysis Evaluation technique was developed in France to aid in optimizing berry ripeness to wine styles.  It is a valuable addition to the chemical parameters of berry ripeness.  If possible, please bring grapes (bunches only) to evaluate at the session.  Fresh picked or chilled day-old grapes are OK.

Instructor:           Dr. Stephen Menke, CSU Enology Program
