Dear Campus Community,

The Fall 2016 Enology-Viticulture Seminar Series is pleased to announce that former Fresno State assistant professor of wine chemistry Dr. Hend Letaief will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, October 12 at noon in the Enology Building on campus. The title of her presentation will be, "From Grapes to Wine: The Art of Using Numbers."

Earlier this year, Dr. Letaief joined Enartis USA as their Technical Director. In this position she is responsible for optimizing the services of their ISO Accredited Laboratory, coordinating a team of winemakers and application specialists, managing Enartis research projects, collaborating with research teams around the world, and leading educational programs through workshops and seminars. Enartis is a leading supplier to the North American wine industry.

Letaief grew up in Tunisia, earned a Master's Degree in Viticulture & Enology from Montpellier SupAgro, and a PhD in Food Science & Technology from the University of Turin. From 2013 to May 2016 she was a faculty member of Fresno State's Department of Viticulture & Enology and worked on research projects related to oxygen management, grape texture and phenolic extractability.

The Department of Viticulture and Enology Seminar Series is held every Wednesday during the fall semester from 12 noon to 1 pm in the Enology Building classroom #102 and is open to the campus community.
