White Wine Technology is a solutions-based approach to help address challenges in white wine production. The book explores emerging trends in modern enology, including molecular tools for wine quality and analysis of modern approaches to maceration extraction, alternative microorganisms for alcoholic fermentation, and malolactic fermentation.

White Wine Technology focuses on the technology and biotechnology of white wines, providing a quick reference of novel ways to increase and improve overall wine production and innovation. Its review of reviews recent studies and technological advancements to improve grape maturity and production and ways to control PH level make this book essential to wine producers, researchers, practitioners, technologists, and students. 

Key Features

  • Covers trends in in both traditional and modern enology technologies, including extraction, processing, stabilization, and ageing technologies
  • Examines the potential impacts of climate change on wine quality
  • Provides an overview of biotechnologies to improve wine freshness in warm areas and to manage maturity in cold climates
  • Includes detailed information on hot topics such as the use of GMOs in wine production, spoilage bacteria, the management of oxidation, and the production of dealcoholized wines


Enologists and researchers, professors, and academicians in wine technology, wine microbiology, and wine composition and analysis
