We are proud to announce our proposal with Oregon State University (OSU) has won the 2022-2023 funding of the American Vineyard Foundation (AVF) and Oregon Wine Board (OWB). In this research proposal, we identified Raman spectroscopy as a potential disrupter of smoke taint assessment. Its speed, robustness against water concentration, high sensitivity and specificity, and low equipment cost are well positioned to complement GC-MS and HPLC/MS technology in large-scale smoke taint assessment. Together with the co-principal investigators in OSU, we hope to make an impact in driving down the detection limit and make fast smoke taint assessment a reality.
