St. Catharines, Ontario—The focus will be on creating balanced wines, when Brock University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) launches its fifth annual lecture series next week. Webcast live from Brock on Jan. 18, CCOVI enologist George Kotseridis will address “Targeting wine balance using biological deacidification methods and by monitoring polyphenolic maturity.”

The entire 12-lecture series presented by noted Ontario researchers and wine industry experts is scheduled for Wednesday afternoons at 3 p.m. eastern time through mid-April and will be webcast live on brocku.ca/ccovi. Viewers may access the site as early as an hour before the start of the lectures. Archived videos of previous lectures will be available at the same website.

Research presented in these annual lectures has become a valuable resource for grapegrowers and winemakers. The findings are applied to industry use in Niagara, across Canada and internationally. Last year’s series drew web viewers from around North America and as far away as Europe.

CCOVI director Debra Inglis has said that the series remains the only one of its kind in Canada. “It’s an excellent way for CCOVI to share significant information and at the same time offer innovative outreach services that benefit the grape and wine industry.”
