Abstract
  • By now, all members of the Oregon Wine and Grape industry are familiar with the concern expressed by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) over the presence of the compound ethyl carbamate, popularly called urethane, in wine. This material has been demonstrated to induce cancer in laboratory animals, and has generated a concern in CSPI over its potential harm to humans. The American wine industry, via the Wine Institute and the Association of American Vintners, has established a cooperative effort to determine levels of ethyl carbamate in wines, to ascertain causes of the presence of this substance, and to significantly lower these levels over a period of time. Details are outlined in a letter addressed to all wineries from the Wine Institute committee on ethyl carbamate, dated July 20,11988. It should be read carefully before harvest begins, since it also has some practical suggestions on means by which levels of urethane may be minimized.
