Red Wine Technology is a solutions-based approach on the challenges associated with red wine production. It focuses on the technology and biotechnology of red wines, and is ideal for anyone who needs a quick reference on novel ways to increase and improve overall red wine production and innovation. The book provides emerging trends in modern enology, including molecular tools for wine quality and analysis. It includes sections on new ways of maceration extraction, alternative microorganisms for alcoholic fermentation, and malolactic fermentation. Recent studies and technological advancements to improve grape maturity and production are also presented, along with tactics to control PH level.This book is an essential resource for wine producers, researchers, practitioners, technologists and students.

Key Features

  • Winner of the OIV Award 2019 (Category: Enology), International Organization of Vine and Wine
  • Provides innovative technologies to improve maceration and color/tannin extraction, which influences color stability due to the formation of pyranoanthocyanins and polymeric pigments
  • Contains deep evaluations of barrel ageing as well as new alternatives such as microoxigenation, chips, and biological ageing on lees
  • Explores emerging biotechnologies for red wine fermentation including the use of non-Saccharomyces yeasts and yeast-bacteria coinoculations, which have effects in wine aroma and sensory quality, and also control spoilage microorganisms


Enologists, researchers, professors and wine technologists in the wine microbiology, composition and analysis Industries. Wine industry professionals

    Awesome book and really impressive customer care service

    I've purchased this book few weeks ago but, when I've check it, I've noticed that thare was a small problem (the back cover was unglued and broken). So I've contacted the Elsevier customer care and, in response, I've received a new book completely free without having to return the damaged one. I'm very happy about the service of Elsevier customer care and, obviously, regards to the professional and very specific content of this book. Thank you Elsevier and thank you Antonio Morata. This book will be a master piece of my library.
