NAPA, May 15, 2017-/ The latest research on oak tannin, oxidative stability in white wine, use of sulfur additions and much more was presented at a technical conference in Santa Rosa on May 10, 2017.  Vicard Generation 7 hosted the conference which was attended by over 145 winemakers and journalists from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Paso Robles and Washington State. Dr. Régis Gougeon, Professor of Chemistry & Enological systems at the Université de Bourgogne and head of the Burgundy Vine and Wine Cluster, presented work on wine ageing, including research on barrier properties of closures and wood/wine interaction.   Dr. Maria Nikolantonaki (Université de Bourgogne) showed how metabolomics can help with understanding the metabolic signature of wines to explain wines stability against oxidation.  Dr. Marie-Laure Badet presented a multi-vintage trial made in collaboration with a First Growth in Bordeaux and the ONF to study the impact oak tannin and geographic origin on red wine.  Dr. Watrelot, from UC Davis, presented data showing the impact of oak tannin and toast on California and Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon. After the presentations, winemakers tasted multiple trials highlighting the changes that can occur with different tannin levels or changes to toast on the same tannin level.  In addition to tasting, they also participated in a sensorial workshop of major oak barrel aromas such as whiskey lactone, vanilla, maltol, guaïacol, and several other compounds. The conference was the 3rd in a series of 4 being presented in the USA, Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Spain.  If you would like to attend the final conference in Bordeaux in June or would like information on the presentations or Vicard Generation 7, please contact: Christy Thomas at christy.thomas@vicardg7.com 707-228-5982 Jean-Charles Vicard founded the cooperage with a single goal: understand, control and then eliminate all the variables in the coopering process and deliver barrels that have predictable flavor profiles.  Vicard Generation 7 now leads the industry with a completely new approach regarding wood analysis, selection and toasting which ensures barrels are homogeneous and reproducible.  Backed by international research teams and the partnerships of wine and spirit professionals around the world, Vicard Generation 7 is changing the paradigm.

Dublin, May 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of SNS Research's new report "The vRAN (Virtualized Radio Access Network) Ecosystem: 2017 - 2030 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts" to their offering. Global spending on virtualized small cells is expected to surpass $1 Billion annually by 2020. The “vRAN (Virtualized Radio Access Network) Ecosystem: 2017-2030 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts” report presents an in-depth assessment of the vRAN ecosystem including enabling technologies, key trends, market drivers, challenges, standardization, collaborative initiatives, regulatory landscape, deployment models, operator case studies, opportunities, future roadmap, value chain, ecosystem player profiles and strategies. The report also presents forecasts for vRAN investments from 2017 till 2030. The forecasts cover multiple submarkets and 6 regions. vRAN refers to a RAN (Radio Access Network) implementation where some or all baseband functions are separated from the remote radio unit and run as VNFs (Virtualized Network Functions) on commodity hardware. This approach results in multiple operational benefits including but not limited to TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) reduction, performance gains and scalability. In addition, vRAN enables mobile operators to future-proof their networks for 5G upgrades.
