“Advances and Innovations in Wine Chemistry” A short presentation followed by Q&A with speaker Dr. Susan Ebeler of UC Davis. This event will be moderated by Bill Courtney, Owner of Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese.
From grape harvesting to fermentation, advanced chemical analysis is now used to discover what gives wine its taste, texture and aroma. Advances in chemistry help grape growers know when to harvest and vintners monitor the wine as it ferments, enabling them to make subtle changes. Join our expert Dr. Susan Ebeler, from UC Davis, as she discusses advances and innovations in the chemistry of wine that will stimulate your brain and tantalize your palette. Here’s to better wine through chemistry!
What You Will Learn
- Winemaking processes
- Major components of wine
- Chemistry of wine flavor
- Linking chemistry to sensory analysis
- And much more…

Meet Your Experts
Dr. Susan Ebeler, is a professor in the Department of Viticulture and Enology at the University of California, Davis. Her research focuses on chemistry and analysis of flavor compounds in grapes, wines and other foods. She also studies the chemical mechanisms for observed health effects of wine and food components. Dr. Ebeler teaches classes on Grape and Wine Analysis, Food and Beverage Flavor Chemistry, and Instrumental Analysis of Foods.
Bill Courtney is the chef/owner of Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese, located in the University City Loop, just west of the city of St. Louis, Missouri. Following completion of his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Missouri – Columbia, Bill worked a short time as a Q.C. Chemist for ConvaTec. A shift in interest eventually took Bill to the The Genome Institute at Washington University, where he spent 9 years working with the leading genetic and genomic research scientists in the United States. In a radical move, Bill struck out on his own to open Cheese-ology, the culmination of years of a self-described “un-natural obsession” with Macaroni & Cheese. Open since June 2010, Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese features over 15 varieties of Macaroni & Cheese to satisfy any Mac & Cheese craving.
