In Memoriam: This spring, the death of David Stevens caused great sadness for so many in our industry. He was my co-instructor of the OIV UC Davis Marketing course, but that was only a small part of Dave’s storied career. As a superb winemaker and judge, deeply knowledgeable teacher of chemistry, globe-trotting production and technology consultant, baseball aficionado, and a man of the world with great wit, Dave touched many lives.
