- The Oregon wine industry has grown rapidly in recent years to over 100 wineries. There is a strong need for enology Extension, technical assistance, and technology transfer of relevant research for commercial application. Enology Extension at OSU provides technical assistance to winery personnel including wine analysis, consultation on prodution problems, training through workshops, and winery site visits. 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. Consultation is provided to evaluate laboratory results and to advise on processing. Potential problem wines are monitored during processing to insure that the wines are sound and stable at bottling.
