Wine, Must and Oenology

赤ワインのグラス

 

Wineries

Alcohol content is an item of major legal/regulative importance; the declaration of incorrect values potentially leading to severe penalties for wine producers. For this reason, it is crucial that the determination of alcohol content be done in accordance with official analysis methods. It is very important to check the density, specific gravity and alcohol content of wine during fermentation to verify its progress and to provide notice if it stops prematurely.

 
Must production

The density of grape juice prior to fermentation is very important to measure, as it indicates its sugar content and gives the producer an idea of the alcohol content that will be generated in the batch.

Oenological laboratories

In addition to providing analytical support to wineries, these laboratories can release certificates of analysis with legal validity. Just like wineries, these laboratories have to perform analyses in accordance with official methodology in order to be sure that they are certifying products correctly.
