Exploring Yeasts in Brickhouse Vineyards

Description

Yeasts are the foundation of the winemaking process. To explore the species of yeast involved in the winemaking process, we sampled yeasts throughout Brickhouse Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon. This biodynamic vineyard uses no commercial yeasts, instead making wine from yeasts native to their property. We identified yeasts by extracting DNA from yeast samples and performing high throughput DNA sequencing on that DNA with yeast-specific primers. Our results show a suite of both common and unique yeasts, demonstrating the microbial terroir of the vineyard.
