CDR WineLab® the reliable, complete and fast system of wine analyses

Determination of pH in wine

CDR WineLab® allows to determine the pH in wine and must thanks to a colorimetric reaction, whose results are correlated to the OIV results, based on an electrochemical reaction.

This parameter influences the vinification and conservation of wine. The range of pH value is approximately 3.00 – 4.00, even if there is no a legal limit.

The CDR WineLab® method does not require any electrode, neither any maintenance or calibration.


Test Principle

pH measures the dissociation grade of acids present in wine or must.

The pH is determined through a colorimetric acid-base reaction in which a phenolic derivative, by the addition of wine or must, undergoes a discoloration. The discoloration, measured at 630 nm (end-point), is directly proportional to the pH.

Calibration curve

The calibration curve of CDR WineLab®, obtained using reference methods, confirms the excellent linearity of the system over the whole testing range.
