ETS was established in 1978 by Gordon and Marjorie Burns to provide the rapidly expanding California Wine Industry with technical assistance and laboratory support.
As the industry developed in size and complexity, winery clients looked increasingly to ETS for more advanced analytical services.
ETS responded by investing in modern equipment and facilities and hiring highly trained technicians and researchers. This effort allowed ETS clients to benefit from the latest in technological advances.
Introducing new technology and developing methods to meet client needs has been a cornerstone of this development process.
Today ETS is one of the most advanced wine analysis laboratories in the world.
Accompanying technical innovation has been a strong commitment to data quality. ETS was awarded ISO 17025 accreditation by the Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) making it the first and only independent, domestic wine laboratory with ISO 17025 accreditation.
