Title CSU Scientist in final three for wine award Media name/outlet Central Western Daily Media type Web Country Australia Date 21/08/19 Description Charles Sturt University's Dr Joanna Gambetta has been announced as a finalist in the 2019 Australian Women in wine awards for her viticulture work.
Dr Gambetta's research at the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre is focused on understanding how the aroma of wine and grapes is affected by things such as temperature changes.
"My current research is examining how grapes respond to a series of abiotic stresses caused by changes in the climate and how these impact the production of important aroma compounds and their precursors," she said. "having this knowledge may also lead to reduced economic losses due to lower quality fruit and wine."
Dr Gambetta has also examined the impact of the timing of leaf removal from the vine on sun damage to the grapes in Orange.
The wine awards celebrate the work of women. Dr Gambetta is one of three finalists for Researcher/Innovator of the Year. The winner will be announced in New York in September
