Both links come 100% recommended by me to listen/read.
And while this isn’t in true “Now Page” fashion, I decided to start my own Denise Gardner NOW page. The goal: keep YOU informed in real time of all the cool things I’m working on as I unfold Denise Gardner Winemaking.
No fluff. No social media. Just now.
What am I doing in Chicago?! Now that the 2018 ASEV-ES Conference is completed, I’m jet-setting to Chicago for the 2018 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Conference. (The last time I attended this conference was when I was on the product development team in graduate school and our food product, Banana Splitters, was a finalist in the IFT competition. So it’s been awhile…)
What’s an enologist doing at a food industry conference?! The answer is found below!
In work: I’ll be spending some time at the IFT Conference, looking for new ingredient suppliers to help my clients craft better formula and fruit wines.
Formula wines – wines like, pre-bottled Sangria, chocolate wine, wines with fun flavors – all fall into this category of “formula wines.” I’m all about making wines with intention, so I’m off to IFT to talk with some ingredient suppliers to make these wines taste better, last longer, and provide more options for today’s winemakers. Need help crafting better formula wines? Check out my consulting options!
In life: As I promised myself, I made it to the pool on day this month. But a few beach days are in my near future…
While I’m in Chi-Town, I’m also going to make some time for another love of my life: plants. Be prepared to see some horticultural photos come your way…
