Introduction to Wine Analysis
Event Type: Seminars and Classes
Description: Examine the basics of wine analysis for commercial and advanced home wine production. Designed for serious winemakers, winery lab employees and small commercial winemakers, this one-day class combines short lecture and hands-on experience. Gain practice with, and examine the limitations of, each analysis. Work in small groups, with university wines, to gain familiarity with these common lab analyses: free and total SO2 by Ripper and Aeration-Oxidation, volatile acidity distillation, titratable acidity, pH, malolactic paper chromatography, residual sugar by pill test and percentage of alcohol by ebulliometer. Some aspects of wine chemistry will be reviewed as it pertains to each analysis. For optimal understanding of the results of each analysis, it is highly recommended that participants have previously attended Introduction to Wine Chemistry.
