Proactive monitoring for wine spoilers
Every winemaker knows that some things get better with age. But for many of the microbes that can spoil wine, the longer they go undetected, the more harm they can cause. During harvest season, the time is especially ripe for unwanted organisms to make their way into the winery and flourish in tanks and barrels Left unchecked, these spoilers can bring wine quality down along with the reputation of your winery. Early detection is critical to protect the lifeblood of your business.
VINOBRETTTM is a game-changing Brettanomyces bruxellensis detection technology powered by VERIFLOW® that brings affordable, onsite PCR testing to your winery.
