Toasting WSU Viticulture & Enology donors and newsmakers!


Keller named science editorangle pour

The American Society for Enology and Viticulture has named Markus Keller, WSU distinguished professor of viticulture, as science editor of their publications.

Keller will direct strategic planning and ensure scientific rigor of the journals American Journal of Enology and Viticulture and Catalyst: Discover into Practice.

He will also serve as chair of the society’s publications committee and be a member of the board of directors.

First crush at the WSC

The WSU V&E program completed a successful first crush at their new Wine Science Center, making 195 wines and processing 23 tons of grapes. Three undergraduate students worked in the winery during the crush, and a new assistant winemaker was hired.

This successful crush provided material for numerous ongoing research projects and will even help a few new projects get started.


Several V&E students went through winter commencement at WSU, both in Pullman and in Tri-Cities. Congratulations to all of our graduates and good luck as you pursue your careers. Cheers!

Do you know a WSU student, faculty member, alumnus or wine industry member who deserves a cheer? Submit their achievements to Voice of the Vine Editor Scott Weybright!
