wine chemistry inspires and challenges with its complexity, and while this is intriguing, it can also be a barrier to further understanding. The topic is demystified in Understanding Wine Chemistry, Special Mention awardee in the 2018 OIV awards, which explains the important chemistry of wine at the level of university education, and provides an accessible reference text for scientists and scientifically trained winemakers alike.
Understanding Wine Chemistry:
- Summarizes the compounds found in wine, their basic chemical properties and their contribution to wine stability and sensory properties
- Focuses on chemical and biochemical reaction mechanisms that are critical to wine production processes such as fermentation, aging, physiochemical separations and additions
- Includes case studies showing how chemistry can be harnessed to enhance wine color, aroma, flavor, balance, stability and quality.
