Do Stinkbugs Contaminate Wine?

Do Stinkbugs Contaminate Wine?

Sometimes stink bugs are accidentally harvested with the grapes that are fermented and turned into wine. The controversy stink bugs have caused among health officials and wine drinkers is they are blended into the wine, is they naturally emit a stress hormone called (E)-2-decenal. Fortunately according to Elizabeth Tomasino, a food scientist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, stated the stress hormone, “is actually found at much higher concentrations in cilantro than in wine and is not a health risk.” Still it is a little uncomfortable to know that, that Friday night glass of red wine… is full of stink bugs.
