Micro-oxygenation and maceration are two very important phases of winemaking that influence the stability and quality of the wine. Both processes are related to the content and characteristics of the polyphenols present in wine. Monitoring the evolution of these compounds over time is a fundamental tool in the hands of the winemaker to better manage winemaking processes and guarantee the quality of the finished product.
Download the article “Managing at best maceration and micro-oxygenation in the winemaking process” to find out which are the most effective methods to monitor the parameters that influence these processes and carry out the necessary operations to obtain both a stable and quality product.

Is setting up a quality control laboratory in the winery a determining factor for wine quality? What are the potential difficulties in carrying out quality control in the winery? What are the solutions for simple vinification control? For more information on this topic, download the article COMPLETE CONTROL OF VINIFICATION IN A SINGLE ANALYSIS INSTRUMENT.
As is known, due to global warming, we are witnessing increasingly adverse and difficult weather conditions. The rise in average temperatures is in fact causing an increase in the frequency of hot and dry vintages alternating with rainy and cool years. In difficult climatic conditions, in addition to the usual analysis of sugar, total acidity, pH and acetic acid, yeast assimilable nitrogen and gluconic acid are the fundamental parameters available to the oenologist to better manage the fermentative process, an essential starting point to obtain a quality wine. What are yeast assimilable nitrogen and gluconic acid? How can these analyses affect alcoholic fermentation?
