- Enology Extension at OSU with support from the Oregon Wine Advisory Board provides technical assistance to winery personnel including wine analysis, consultation on production problems, and training through workshops and winery site visits. The Oregon wine industry has grown rapidly in recent years to over 100 wineries. There is a strong need for enology technical assistance and technology transfer of relevant research for commercial application. The primary focus of the OSU Enology Extension program is to increase commercial wine producer ability to recognize, avoid, and correct for physical, chemical, and microbial problems in Oregon wines. The goal of the Enology Laboratory is to provide assistance in quality control management and training for Oregon wineries. Commercial problems frequently encountered are often the basis of the development of new research directions.
