NAPA, Calif. – Oak Solutions Group has launched Next Generation, a new line of oak chips debuted at the 2011 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium. “Through 25 years of crafting alternatives and a commitment to serving as a leader in our industry, we have created the next generation,” said Ed Larmie, director. “We combined what we’ve learned through trials, science and technology to forge a new frontier.” Next Generation oak chips are the latest release from the forward-thinking ?vOAK product line. As part of the development process, Oak Solutions Group’s research team identified three primary factors that influence what an oak alternative can do for wine: intensity (overall oak impact), mouthfeel (the perception of weight on the palate) and structure (length on the palate, framework of the wine). Next Generation oak chips were then developed to represent ideal combinations of these three attributes while capitalizing on the unique properties of French and American oak. “For years, many have defined the anticipated flavor of oak alternatives by the color derived during the toasting process,” explains David Llodrá, research and development director. “However, it’s been proven that color chemistry is not directly linked to flavor. While ‘medium toast’ and ‘high toast’ descriptors do help distinguish between products, Next Generation chips are defined by a new way of thinking – the true impact of a product on wine.” Next Generation chips also benefit from new advancements in toasting technology. “We developed a new process and corresponding technology that can change temperature quickly and more accurately,” said Llodrá. “This creates unique flavors through precise manipulation of French and American oak’s many attributes”.

SACRAMENTO, California — Davis Instruments today announced its new Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Module for Grapes, at the 2011 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, in Sacramento, California. The new software provides the final step in linking grape growers’ weather data to actual pest risk, giving them a powerful new tool in the battle against grape crop pest damage. The IPM module is an add-on software component that works with Davis Instruments’ Vantage Pro2™ solar-powered wireless weather station and WeatherLink® to gather real-time temperature, humidity, and rain and leaf wetness data. It also generates stepped risk levels to warn when conditions are favorable for pest development. The software is loaded with pest models for all known grape pests, including diseases, insects and mites. (Growers may delete pests not present in their area.) “Davis Instruments has a history of using its weather technology to help grape growers with their crops but this is the company’s first software dedicated to vineyard pest management,” said Anson Moore, Sales and Marketing Director, Davis Instruments. “We have worked with wine and grape experts to identify environmental conditions that favor destructive pests and diseases. We believe our pest management package (the IPM module, Vantage Pro2 and WeatherLink) is an essential tool for healthy crops and healthy profits.” From their PC, growers can now see at a glance when conditions are favorable for insect pests reaching a damaging stage of growth, or for disease development to occur. A color-coded spreadsheet puts the highest risk potential pests at the top of the list and highlights them in red. Because they can configure the software to reflect pests present in their area and use real-time data from their own vineyard weather sensors, the software’s updated pest development algorithms provide growers with the most accurate, vineyard-specific risk assessment available.
